Produced by an Academy Award-winning team including the Executive Producer of Taxi to the Dark Side and the Editor of Inside Job, Uprising tells the inside story of the Egyptian revolution from the perspective of its principal leaders and organizers, including four Nobel Peace Prize nominees. Their success in forcing the downfall of a brutal dictatorship has changed the face of the Middle East and provided hope for millions of oppressed people across the world. Above all, it is a story of profound hope, and of courage rewarded.

The Karlton Hines Story

Troy Reed, 2005, 57 min

Karlton Hines was one of the most fierce basketball players on the streets of New York City. From the age of 12, he dominated the game. His talent caught the eye of every top Division I college in the nation. Coaches and scouts flocked from suburban areas into the inner-city projects to recruit him. In the end, he disappointed them all.
