Short Films from Around the World

Dig a Little Deeper. Get Beyond the News.

Want to dig a little deeper? Want to get beyond the traditional news segment or web video? The Fusion Mini-Docs series is the place for you. Every other week, Fusion's Mini-Docs team from all over the world will bring you the best stories in compelling, well-crafted, emotionally charged short documentaries. From a family-owned mezcal distillery in Oaxaca to the barracks of the Israeli army, from Mexico City's Roller Derby chicas to activists and artists in Boyle Heights or the Bronx, we will introduce you to the people and places you should know and will want to share. From sports, food and music to the drug war and immigration, these Mini-Docs will cover the topics you care about, putting you smack dab in the middle of the action.
