Afloat: From the intimate vantage point of a senior community swimming pool, water and time suspend both body and memory. This film travels underwater and above water to create a gentle meditation on growing old, staying young, and living life.
The angelmakers: Tells the forgotten story of a large group of Hungarian women who killed their husbands with arsenic in 1929.
High Plains winter: This short film captures the lunar quality of the western winter landscape. Amid the great expanses of sky and snow, we find the unusual sport of ski-joring and an unlikely visual comment on the fading cultural isolation of the west.
Send me somewhere special: What happens when you point the camera at ordinary people and get a conversation going that would never take place otherwise? Absorbing in its randomness and suspenseful in its daring, this extaordinary personal journey searches for answers to life's persistant questions of love and happiness.
Stand like still living: Set in a San village in western Botswana, the film follows the lives of two people affected by AIDS and achieves a rare feat: to capture the rhythms of two human beings standing on that precarious yet luminous doorway between life and death.
The intimacy of strangers: A story of life, love, loss, and hope--told entirely through the overheard mobile phone conversations of random strangers--weaves seemingly unrelated conversations into a cohesive documentary narrative.
