Documentary Films


The Scottish Filmmaker, John Grierson, credited with coining the term “documentary,” defined the art form as a “creative treatment of actuality.” Some of the most compelling stories don’t come from the writer’s pen or the artist’s imagination, but are discovered in the actual lives of real people.

At Mercy Pictures, we believe in the power of the moving image to share these important narratives. Combining the spirit of traditional storytelling with the tools of cutting-edge digital and cinematic technology, we create motion pictures that endeavor to educate minds, inspire action, and affect change, all in a way that draws the viewer to the heart of a story.
