GroundSpark makes films to create change. We have created a collection of award-winning documentaries on social justice issues ranging from preventing bullying in schools to stopping the production of nuclear weapons.
Our newest film PROGNOSIS – Notes on Living, co-produced by Citizen Film, is a deeply moving personal memoir about GroundSpark founder Debra Chasnoff’s experience living with advanced cancer. The film invites audiences, at a critical moment in American history, to talk about end of life issues, community care, and what it means to live with intentionality up to the last breath.
Through our Respect For All Project, GroundSpark has produced a series of films and their accompanying curriculum guides aimed at K-12 educators and students to promote diversity and anti-bias education on topics including sexuality, gender identity and expression, and family structure.
