Riverwest Film & Video - Directed by Emir Cakaroz

"This documentary is about Riverwest Film & Video, which rents out DVDs and sells film equipment. It also hosts a neighborhood radio station which is open to anyone who wants to have a program. The documentary examines the regulars of the store and the radio programmers and their relationships with the place. The film is also an investigation of a space in which the public and the private merge." –Emir Cakaroz

His award-winning films have screened all around the world, including the International Golden Orange Film Festival in Turkey and Short Film Corner in Cannes Film Festival in France.
