Mosaic Medias, founded in 2001 by Ann Armstrong Scarboro, Ph.D., promotes international and inter-cultural understanding.
We believe that the works of the individuals in our films merit much greater attention than they have received to date, both from educators and from the general public. We are persuaded that human beings expand, grow and become more tolerant when they participate in exchanges of cultures.
