The documentary film Blacks and Jews, written and directed by Deborah Kaufman and Alan Snitow, was aired on PBS on July 29, 1997. The film, which was co-produced by Kaufman, Snitow, and Bari Scott, examines three headline-making conflicts between the two groups from the perspectives of activists on both sides.  The filmmakers have said they hope that Blacks and Jews will "provoke debate and discussion about intergroup relations in the United States" and that "the film lets us laugh about ourselves and lets us approach one another without fear."

In addition to Blacks and Jews, Snitow-Kaufman Productions has released Secrets of Silicon Valley (2001), which explores the darker side of the Internet revolution, and Thirst (2004), which explores the role of water rights in globalization and community resistance to globalization.
