Pincus and Small Films emerged out of a chance meeting between two independent filmmakers Ed Pincus and Lucia Small when they sat on a film jury together and discovered that they shared a strong sensibility yet were different enough to make things "interesting". Pincus, who had been away from filmmaking for 25 years, was eager to return to film and collaborate with Small, who had produced many independent films, including her then just released directorial debut film. Three years later, they formed Pincus and Small Films, setting the goal of producing provocative, critical, humorous, captivating and innovative films, qualities evident in their previous independent work.

Pincus and Small's first film project, THE AXE IN THE ATTIC (2007), is a feature documentary exploring the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina — What happens when you are exiled in your own country? LOWER NINTH WARD (2009), is a short, also exploring the aftermath of Katrina. It is a visual and sound meditation on lives suddenly interrupted by a flood, revealing a destruction of a community. 

Recently, Small and Pincus have come together again to make what might be their last film — ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, a film that
explores the notion of chance, friendship, legacy, love and learning to live life to the fullest in the face of a terminal illness.

This film project is currently being produced under The Independent Feature Project. and is seeking donations. IFP is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
