About Us

Carbon Trace Productions is a documentary project by Dr. Andrew Cline. The production crew recently finished its first feature-length project — Downtown — a documentary film about the emerging trend of Americans choosing to move away from the suburbs in search of a new American Dream in re-developing urban centers. Downtown recently screened at the 2016 New Urbanism Film where it won the Best Urbanism Sociology Film award. The team also produced a documentary short related to Downtown called Shared Spaces — an official selection at the 2015 New Urbanism Film Festival. Production has begun on two feature-length documentaries, one about the student debt crisis and another about an emerging mental health issue in Syrian refugee children. The team is finishing post-production on a documentary short about Souriyat Across Borders, a rehabilitation facility in Amman, Jordan serving Syrian refugees.
