Railing at the Rally

In 2024, President Joe Biden faces another challenge from the man who occupied the White House before him. The Reporters Inc. attended the Trump rally featured in this documentary back in the fall of 2019 — but “RAILING AT THE RALLY” is just as relevant, if not more so, today. It explores the misinformation, disinformation and lies that disturbingly fill the minds and souls of Trump supporters. It’s a MUST WATCH before you vote in 2024.


The Queens

The queens in “The Queens” never fail to mesmerize. They’re gorgeous, mysterious, and infinitely entertaining.

The results are provocative, explosive, and ultimately enlightening as the participants throw out all notions of being politically correct in order to come to a true understanding of one another.


Experiment: Gay and Straight

Following the enormous success of Experiment in Black and White, the same concept is used to bring understanding and enlightenment to issues of sexuality. Experiment: Gay and Straight sequesters five homosexual and five heterosexual Chicagoans for a week together; the resulting debates, drama, bonding, and resolution prove to be just as compelling and intriguing as the original Experiment.
