Resilience

The Strawberry Hill

The Strawberry Hill

I made this film back in 2007. It’s a film about many things. A resilient dream being one. Alejandro was running for President of Guatemala. He didn’t win. He won at his fourth attempt and is currently President of His Country, despite having been a quadriplegic.

One True Voice

One True Voice

‘…the Universe said Jonas is not listening. We did everything we can to make him listen. But he does not listen. So maybe this will wake him up.’ A film about art, cancer and waking up.

A Glimpse Of Reality

A Glimpse Of Reality

A dramatic story, pointing to a human resilience which I believe is more common than we suppose. It’s told through an uncommon depth of observation. And wonders if there is more to us than the series of events we’ve been through.

When’s Daddy Coming Home?

When’s Daddy Coming Home?

In those life experiences of our greatest pain and suffering also comes the greatest love and beauty, and transformation. This is a film about sudden loss, and the experience of telling a young child that her Father had died.

How to Give a Fishing Lesson

How to Give a Fishing Lesson

Might the causes of poverty lie deeper than just physical need. And might the way out lie with our ability to see ourselves together, as the same.’ An extraordinary and humbling experience. A film about the often missed nature of poverty.

Side By Side

Side By Side

In the complex landscape of Schizophrenia, I imagine Compassionate Care should not be absent. Care that is unconditional. Care that is full of hope and of possibility.

The Midwife’s Tale

The Midwife’s Tale

Doña Chona seems tired but she isn’t frightened. The frightened you see deep in the eyes of most human beings. A frightened that hides itself well. A frightened that quietly shouts its assumption of isolation, and of loneliness.

Interconnected

Interconnected

A profound observation of disconnectedness and the pathway to interconnectedness in the violent Klamath Conflict. Relevant to all conflict. The process of vulnerability and truth is more important than one could ever imagine.

Revelation

Revelation

In the protracted Klamath Conflict in Oregon, a Farming Community Leader came to the revelation that the things that he held as fact weren’t, people that he once thought of as evil and selfish were not, and that he was part of the problem. And such revelations changed everything.

The Fight Against Me

The Fight Against Me

We level our ire at the world around us. The world with which our opinion so often disagrees. But might our energy be better focused on the experience within our own personal jurisdiction. This was filmed from deep within the experience of a thoughtful life lived through desegregation in Alabama. This film is the epitome of the experience of peace.
