We’re independent filmmakers who love creating character-driven documentaries. At our non-profit production company Optimist, we explore complex issues through real, human stories and then provide ways for viewers to get actively involved.
In communities all over the world, we’ve seen people stepping up to face injustice—and they’re winning. Believing that progress is possible isn’t naive. It’s necessary.
Your support buying DVDs, shirts, and curriculums helps continue our work, while sharing our stories with the world. Thank you for being a part of the Optimist family.
