Concentric Media is an award-winning, nonprofit documentary film production company based in Menlo Park, California. Our films explore what happens when people work together to promote social justice and support human dignity. The range of subjects include: humane values in education; women’s reproductive health in India; the pro-choice movement in the United States; innovative approaches to health care and healing; light as a sacred symbol in cultures throughout the world.

The Core Team for this project included Dorothy Fadiman, Henock Hailu, Amy Hill, Matthew Luotto, and Shenaz Zack. Additional filming and still images were provided by Cotton Coulson and Sisse Brimberg.

The Translation Team included Teshome Asrat, Abebaye Assefa, Meheret Fikre-Sellassie, Saba Hailu, and Thomas Paul.

We could not have produced the SEEDS of HOPE series without the generous support and guidance of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Population Communications International, and the many Ethiopians and others who have assisted us as advisors and volunteers.
