Megashare Creating Freedom The Lottery of Birth (2013)
is the first in a three-part documentary series entitled \'Creating Freedom\' exploring the relationship between freedom, power and control in Western democracies. The series draws together interviews with some of the world\'s leading intellectuals, journalists and activists to offer an alternative perspective on today\'s society and the future we\'re creating. We do not choose to exist, or the environment we grow up in. Our starting point in life is one of passive reliance on forces over which we have no control. THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH shows that from birth onwards our minds are a battleground of competing forces: familial, educational, cultural, and professional. The outcome of this battle not only determines who we become, but the society that we create.

Megashare Art Bastard (2016)
What is art and how does it relate to society? Is its value determined by its popularity or originality? Is the goal profit or expressing one\'s personal vision? These are some of the questions raised as we follow fiercely independent New York artist Robert Cenedella in his artistic journey through decades of struggling for creative expression. A student, protégé and friend of German artist George Grosz, Cenedella is now passing on the legacy of Grosz\'s approach to art, in the very same room where Grosz taught. In portraying Cenedella\'s determination to buck the system of what\'s popular while critiquing that popularity in his attempt to turn the art world upside down, ART BASTARD is a funny, touching, and insightful look inside the maverick mind of a true original.
Director: Victor Kanefsky
