We are delighted to announce one of our new films, Men in Danger: Environmental Effects on Fertility
, has been named Best Current Affairs Program by the prestigious Prix Europa. The film concerns sperm production in humans which has suffered a spectacular drop, by 50% in 50 years. In addition, testicular cancers and congenital malformation of male reproductive organs are on the rise. This disturbing documentary looks at findings that point to pollutants as the cause of endocrinal changes in the male reproductive system.

We attended the National Media Market in blue grass country, where the grass is, if not blue, at least very very plush and green.We were busy showing our new releases to the librarians and media specialists who attended and getting their reactions to each. It was very gratifying; we’ve never had a better response, all the screens busy and people were even viewing on their personal laptops.
