Stories Around the World

Walking in Others' Shoes

We produce documentary films using a unique and deliberate storytelling approach--to tell stories from the inside out. We do this by connecting with individual people and their stories in order to make sense of differences that separate us and overcome those differences through walking in others' shoes (empathy). Empathy is the cornerstone of the mission and directives that guide BlueShoe Media and, we believe, the foundation for a compassionate & loving world.

Without Color

When an Indian woman becomes a widow, her life changes without warning. She faces abandonment by her family and rejection by those around her. Without Color is a powerful film about the plight of widows and the hope that exists in their lives through stories of their empowerment.

The Middle East crisis continues to displace millions of people. Refugees are fleeing Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and surrounding nations as war pushes them out of their homes. These refugees seek asylum in Europe, but to do so they must take a long journey across treacherous waters. This film follows three Americans that travel the same route alongside the refugees. Their journey starts in Beirut, Lebanon and ends in Berlin, Germany.
