“Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change”

This film shows the influence that the largest company in the world has on governments, the media and citizens and what can be done about global warming. While the Earth’s climate is pushed further out of balance by increasing use of fossil fuels, ExxonMobil continues to assert undue influence around the world—making record profits while ignoring climate science for which there has been overwhelming consensus for over ten years.

“Out of Balance” does not just critique ExxonMobil, it also offers challenging, large-scale ideas for the global social changes that must take place if there’s any chance of having a livable planet for future generations.

Worlds Apart: 9-11 First Responders Against War 

Many stories have been told about the heroes of 911. Over 300 first responders gave their lives in attempts to save lives at Ground Zero in New York City. For many who survived, the horror of 9-11 and the days after continue to effect them every single day. 

In NYC, there is a small group of first responders called Ground Zero for Peace who have called for nonviolent responses to the attacks. It is their belief that violence will only breed more violence. If we hope to eradicate terrorism, violence is not a solution. Reaction to their stance has been mixed, but never mild. Worlds Apart focuses on these heroes of 911, and their lives since that tragic day. 

The documentary features footage from a peacemaking delegation that brought 9-11 EMT Megan Bartlett and Joe Public Films producer Tom Jackson to Afghanistan in May 2004. They met with Afghan first responders in an attempt to establish ties of friendship, and to see if Afghan rescue workers were really much different than those in NYC. 

Joe Public Films has received exclusive Afghan battle & rescue footage from award winning cameraman M. Yousuf Jonnesar. The documentary features traditional Afghan music and songs from David Rovics, Emma's Revolution and others.
