Development

A Tear in the Fabric

Director:  Veronica Turowski

Screenwriter:  Veronica Turowski and Ron Turowski

Genre:  Documentary

 

The United States has become deeply fragmented when it comes to the acceptance of sexual orientation. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community want their constitutional freedoms stating that heterosexuals are discriminating against them. Even though people seem more liberal, individuals in the LGBT community still feel victimized, bullied, and harassed.

 

No one has the right to judge another based on religion, race, or sexual orientation. Only through compassion, acceptance, and tolerance will this world see that we are all connected - we are all human. We must repair, restore, and rebuild the division that keeps expanding in our country.

    
Mon Valley Moving Mountains

Director:  Veronica Turowski

Screenwriter:  Veronica Turowski and Ron Turowski

Genre:  Documentary

 

Pennsylvania’s Monongahela Valley, also known as Mon Valley, was the economic backbone that supported Pittsburgh. In 1875, Edgar Thompson Steel Works became the first major steel mill built in the country and Mon Valley quickly evolved into the world capital of steel production. 

 

Starting in the 1970s, the steel industry began its struggle to keep manufacturing at the rate in which they were accustomed. Over the last forty years, steel production in the United States has been virtually decimated while China and Japan are currently thriving. With the collapse of the steel industry in Mon Valley and no major taxpayers left to support the area, the municipalities are turning into urban decay. 

 

Many residents of the town are elderly or poverty stricken. The younger generations are standing alongside the aging population in a battle for their lives. Is there a way for these boroughs to exist while mills, factories, small businesses, and hospitals close or are they going to become extinct? When fast food restaurants won't even open in these towns, what hope is there? Follow the fight of the leaders and the hardships of the people to see if these forsaken towns can be brought back to life.
