HAA — nurturing artistic and educational works that speak to local, national and international issues



The Bedford Playhouse, in Bedford, New York, will be hosting a screening of OUT OF MY HEAD, followed by a Q & A with director Susanna Styron on January 31st at 7 PM. Susanna had a very personal reason to make a film about the debilitating effects of migraines. Her daughter Emma is a chronic sufferer. Helping Emma struggle with the condition spurred the filmmaker to explore the subject in Out of My Head.

We are very happy to announce that the award-winning and highly acclaimed UNTOLD STORY OF EMMETT LOUIS TILL is now available to the general public free-of-charge through KANOPY streaming service. A public library card or university card are required to take advantage of this opportunity. 

The award-winning film OUT OF MY HEAD, is now available for streaming to international audiences worldwide. For regions outside the USA & Canada, visit vimeo.com. For USA & Canada please visit KinoLorber.

Marieke Vervoort in competition

Addicted To Life

Marieke Vervoort chose to end her brave struggle October 22, 2019.

A paralyzed Belgian athlete takes control of her slow, painful decline by planning for assisted suicide, and paradoxically becomes a world champion in sports. As her body gives way and her time left becomes unpredictable, she fights to seize the most from every remaining moment. Contribute to help complete this remarkable film which portrays gold-medalist Marieke Vervoort’s struggles and victories, as well as the ethical debate around this champion's right to physician-assisted death.
