OUR MISSION:To save and share stories that educate and inspire people of all ages, far and wide.

Since 2019, Surefooted Films has been filming interviews with area activists for our 3 part documentary film, Struggle. Triumph. Repeat…(previous title was ‘The Activist Next Door’). Part 1: Civil Rights has been selected to compete for ‘Best Documentary Film’ in the 3rd Annual Albany Film Festival, sponsored by The Writer’s Institute, Saturday April 1st at the U of Albany Uptown Campus. Please go to our Home Page for the link to the 5 minute trailer.

An ever-growing archive of those interviews is not only a vital part of this website-It is our gift to YOU. It is a living, breathing, historical legacy. Celebrate with us their struggles and triumphs. Never forget: EACH of us, young and old, is a part of history.

That’s my dad at the top of the tree in our logo. It’s from an old photo we took in the 1960’s. With the help of spikes strapped on his work boots he climbs
with confidence. Arms spread wide-he welcomes you.

Lastly, in January 2023 we registered with New York State to be a non-profit, 501 (c) 3. Our fiscal sponsor is Fractured Atlas. All donations are tax deductible…..and vital for completion of Part 2: Vietnam Vets and Part 3: Community Activists. THANK YOU! 

Struggle, Triumph, REPEAT!
