By building bridges of mutual understanding between countries and cultures, Adobe Productions brings to life international television documentaries that capture the human spirit. Reanimating the sober, statistical documentary with an injection of emotion, complexity and universality, Adobe’s trademark «up close and personal» approach delivers films committed to letting subjects tell their own stories. «We want people to feel that we’re making a film with them, not just merely about them», says filmmaker Luc Côté.
Since Adobe partners Robbie Hart and Luc Côté began making documentaries together in 1986, their human approach to filmaking has led to international sales in English, French and Spanish to over 40 countries around the world, including broadcasters across Canada like the CBC, Radio-Canada,Vision TV, TVOntario, Télé-Québec, YTV, SCN TV and the Knowledge Network.
The Adobe duo have produced 27 documentaries on a wide range of hard-hitting international topics from street kids, violence against women, and native peoples to the environment, urban poverty and AIDS.
