"…illuminates a subaltern history of courage and activism across racial/ethnic borders--an internationalist history that is an important (and forgotten) legacy of the civil rights, labor, feminist, and anti-imperialist struggles of the second half of the twentieth century."

QUAD Productions is a non-profit media collective focusing on the research, development and production of film and other media projects that support and affect progressive social consciousness. Since its founding in 1999, QUAD Productions has produced over a dozen short films and three feature-length documentaries – all focusing on various social justice campaigns, including the award winning documentary, Mountains That Take Wing — Angela Davis, Yuri Kochiyama: A Conversation on Life, Struggles & Liberation (2009, 97 minutes. Distributed by Women Make Movies), América’s Home (2014, 63 minutes), a documentary that explores the impact of colonization through a matrix of race, gentrification and displacement, empire and popular resistance in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and  Queer, Broke & Amazing! (2024, 89 minutes), a documentary about Queer and Trans people surviving, thriving, and getting free.


QUAD's Co-Founders and Co-Directors C. A. Griffith and H. L. T. Quan received three consecutive Film/Video Studio Program post-production residency awards from the Wexner Center for the Arts. They thank the Wexner Center for their generous support which enabled them to complete Mountains That Take Wing (2009), América’s Home and Queer, Broke & Amazing!

our films

QUAD Productions film work centers community voices and visions.  We seek to elevate stories and movements of historically underrepresented communities and  individuals who have been or are (re)crafting life and living for justice and dignity for everyone.  and we believe that socially relevant media are also aesthetically beautiful and emotionally satisfying.
