Pureland Pictures

PURELAND PICTURES is a Brooklyn-based production company founded in 2000 by award-winning filmmaker Emily Abt. Our documentary features have aired on networks such as Showtime, PBS and the Sundance Channel.

Our first feature narrative "Toe to Toe" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and was later released theatrically by Strand.

During its 15-year tenure, Pureland has built a strong reputation for taking on delicate subject matter with skill and diplomacy.

We are proud to announce that Omar Epps has joined our team as Executive Producer. Epps is a prolific television and film actor who most recently starred in ABC's drama "Resurrection" and Fox's hit medical drama "House" for which he won numerous NAACP awards. The issues in "Daddy Don't Go" resonate with Epps personally and are close to his heart.
