WHEN THE SHIFTS CHANGE

DIRECTED BY LAUREN ANDERS BROWN

PRODUCED BY JESS WEISS

The day my home city of New York had more deaths than on 9/11, I began asking essential workers to record their experiences before and after they began working their shifts as mail carriers, nurses, subway drivers, sanitation workers, redeployed doctors and doormen. What results is a story of humanity, humility, and everyday heroes hidden within these New Yorkers.

PROTECT OR INFECT

DIRECTED BY LAUREN ANDERS BROWN

Years before the world’s population would fall into crisis over how to protect themselves from a pandemic, two surgeons were already discovering the impact of precarious supply chains, poor quality equipment and PPE leaving some of the world’s most vulnerable on operating tables. Their findings predicted what we’re now seeing around the world today- a new look at how to prevent infection through innovation. 

A follow-up documentary to the award-winning, internationally distributed documentary The Checklist Effect.

 

ANONYMOUS SYRIA

DIRECTED BY ALI AL IBRAHIM AND LAUREN ANDERS BROWN

Estimated completion for principal photography: TBD

Synopsis: In a conflict that has lasted over a decade, displaced Syrians have been forced to move on and start again. Yet when a country shuts down, so too do the official touchstones that make us human. This feature documentary will explore the lives of Syria’s ‘living ghosts’ - undocumented citizens who have survived the war with no proof that they are alive, married, educated or even dead.
