ZIN Documentary produces creative documentary films on urgent social and political topics. We are driven by the need for creative storytelling in the service of movies that matter. Specializing in urgent stories that reflect our values of dedication to justice, we work from a deep place of humility and generosity seeing storytelling as form of love and friendship, an act of giving and sharing. Oue goal is ego-less filmmaking, that itself is a political act: collaboration without competition, made in the faith that cinema has a transformative power to enlarge our hearts and inspire us to embody our better selves.
