Eureka Productions specializes in martial arts and social issues documentary videos — all the news that doesn’t fit at a prime time of your convenience.
Our martial arts production department focuses on cutting edge presentations of qigong, meditation, healing, and the internal martial arts.
Also featured are reports on ongoing seminars, including the Masters on the Mountain series as well as Masters in Mendocino, presented by our sister organizations Redwood Coast Tai Chi and Sierra Nevada Internal Arts. They feature ground-breaking developments of the world’s most innovative masters of the body’s intrinsic energy, such as, vertical axis tai chi, spinal energy pa kua and energy body qigong.
Eureka Videos has produced numerous award-winning documentaries of various social issues, receiving praise from mainstream film makers as well as national politicians. The social issues videos are intimate (grass roots) and radical. Dinner in Managua and Sing to Me the Dream (featured at the first Lake Tahoe Film Festival) were passed around for home viewings by groups resisting our proxy wars in Central America during the Reagan years.
On the other hand, True Freedom Fighters was a visit to the mujahadeen resistance to the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan which found the leaders of their insurrection reminding us of our own founding fathers.
Eureka Productions also specializes in ecological issues. Our documentary on micro-organic farms, Invitation to Garden, as the world’s solution to desertification, won a gold medal at the Worldfest in Houston in l996. Our film on sustainable logging and the resistance to corporate practices — from the viewpoint of ‘gypo’ loggers in the ‘wobbly’ tradition — was a finalist at both Worldfest in 1996 and the Charleston Film Festival of 1997.
