Jesselyn ‘JessZilla’ Silva is a 15-year-old girl from New Jersey and a 3x National Boxing Champion. Jess has her sights set on becoming the best in boxing. Her father, Pedro, navigates what it means to support his daughter’s dreams in an extremely dangerous sport.
As Jess is on the cusp of making the U.S. Olympic team, she faces her toughest battle yet, a cancer diagnosis. JessZilla is a coming-of-age story about what it means to be a champion.

Friday Night Blind
It’s another Friday night at Burnham Bowl. Strikes, spares, gutter balls, with no shortage of trash talking and victory dancing. But the group that’s making all the noise isn’t just another bowling league.
The Milwaukee Beer Barrels Blind Bowling League is an eclectic mix of visually impaired and sighted bowlers with a simple focus: making friends, having fun, taking life one frame at a time.
Friday Night Blind is the warm, quirky, inspiring story of three visually impaired bowling friends and the way they roll.
