Black Church Inc.
Black Church, Inc. attempts to justify the dichotomy of the profits of prophets. It compares pastors who are seen as activists such as Rev. Taharka Robinson, Rev. Al Sharpton and Pastor Raphael Warnock with pastors who are criticized for being celebrity brands such as Rev. Eddie Long, Rev. Creflo Dollar and Rev. T.D. Jakes. The documentary takes a deep dive into controversial issues clouding the church including "love offerings"(cash payments given to ministers), financial abuse and the deification of the mega-church pastor all while asking... is prayer-for-profit moral?

Father Forgive Him
In an era of mega-churches, televangelism and mass media, an evolution has occurred in modern-day Christianity across all denominations. The church leader's pulpit has more power, influence and mystique than ever before. On Sunday mornings, men and women of all faiths flock to their respective places of worship for prayer, devotion and redemption. They seek relief for their misgivings and from their tribulations. Often these congregants are made up of the most vulnerable and downtrodden. However, what happens when these most desperate individuals are abused by and become prey to those very individuals whom they entrust to lead them to their salvation? This film exposes the reality of today’s Christian Church culture and the abuse of power that so often exists.

Through the perspective of various experts, 72% looks into the reasoning behind the rise of single mothers in the African-American community. The film investigates the effects that colonization and slavery have had on the black family unit, which was once solid and intact.
The city that Oprah and President Obama call home has become marred by murder. In response to its staggering homicide rate, locals have coined it "Chiraq" (a hybrid of Chicago and Iraq).
