Swell Cinema is a 501 (c) (3), award-winning film production, distribution and educational outreach organization founded by filmmaker Charlotte Lagarde in 1996 with offices in Berkeley, CA and Guilford, CT.
Swell Cinema’s mission is to produce documentary films with an independent vision and to educate the public about contemporary issues. Our goal is to create documentaries that are intimate portraits of individuals living unique lives. Our objective is to challenge viewers to more closely examine their beliefs, values, lifestyles, and history in order to encourage their participation in social issues and deepen their connection to the natural world.
