In these challenging times, where inequality and injustice are increasingly visible, the world needs voices to illuminate the truth.  Enter Reuben Aaronson, a lifetime documentary filmmaker whose work resonates with authenticity and artistry.  Known for his dedication to storytelling and beauty, Aaronson’s signature style has garnered acclaim from the industry’s most prestigious awards including Oscars and Emmys.

Reuben is the founder of NGOFilms, a production company dedicated to making long and short films to advance awareness of human rights and the need for social justice.

Among his recent projects, River of Gold, about illegal gold mining in the Amazon, won Best Environmental Film of the Year at the International Environmental Film Festival in Paris along with 12 other awards.  His recent film, The Cost of Silence, reveals the vastly under-reported deadly human health consequences of the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and was nominated for Best Feature Documentary at The Sundance Film Festival.




Project Angel Food was the lucky recipient of a film by Reuben Aaronson’s NGOFilms.  Not only did Reuben shoot the film beautifully, he found the most poignant way to tell the story of our drivers, who are the lifeline of our organization.

Reuben’s film brought the audience at our annual gala to tears and helped us to raise $50,000 in less than 10 minutes!

NGOFilms came to our rescue. We are a small organization with a large mission: to help bring about peace in the Middle East.  We needed a short video to put on our website and Reuben brought his heart and talent to the job.  Now his film is our calling card to the world.

Every American should have the opportunity to see “Strangers in Town” amazing job of conveying a moving true story of humanity at its best.

The Cost of Silence” gives you urgent reasons to turn up at the ballot box with your rage and opposition.


“I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It is lovely price sufficient for me.  Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you
did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever before.”

“I have just viewed STRANGERS IN TOWN about immigration in Garden City Kansas and it is a beautifully flawless and almost lyrical but also a strong and powerful overview of the continued growth of that small city and the ongoing fact that the American Dream is still very much alive.”
