Founded in 1999, Mosaic Films Incorporated has produced, co-produced, and developed the documentary projects of director Aaron Woolf, including King Corn, Greener Grass, and Dying to Leave, while helping to nurture the work of emerging filmmakers like Ian Cheney, Taylor Krauss, Charlie Hoxie, Flor Salcedo, Edward Ellis and Jessica Pilot.
The work has mainly focused on long-form documentaries that look into the human consequences of government policy. Each Mosaic Films project strives to develop a unique and innovative style, derived from the subject at hand. Music is composed from ‘found sounds’ on location and visuals employ a mosaic of formats: thoughtful graphics; super 8 grain; animated still images; and stop-motion modeling.
Mosaic Films projects have been supported by grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, The Kresge Foundation; The Kellogg Foundation, ITVS and CPB and have won Peabody, Rockie and Logie awards. Mosaic Film’s documentaries have been released theatrically in the United States and abroad and television outlets have included PBS, RAI, ARTE, SBS, Discovery and the Sundance Channel.
The company has also produced long- and short-form pieces for such diverse entities as thirteen/WNET, United and American Airlines, and Tom’s of Maine.
