AWAKE, A DREAM FROM STANDING ROCK
Tells the story of the massive peaceful resistance led by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to the Dakota Access Pipeline through their land and underneath the Missouri River.
World Premiere, Tribeca Film Festival
Traverse City Film Festival

"A lesson in resistance for the rest of us...Evocative...not only serves as a vital record of one of the biggest protest movements since Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter, but its events are also fresh. That swift response, a wake-up call, in the form of a visual poem, is a testament to the filmmakers' artistry, and urgency."
Jude Dry, IndieWire
"Provides a powerful picture of the people who have made Standing Rock, North Dakota, one of the most-watched places on earth."
Jackie Strause, The Hollywood Reporter

DENIAL
About electricity, identity, family, and about the many ways we lie to ourselves when faced with overwhelming facts. It is the story of a family coming to terms with hard personal truths against the backdrop of a global crisis.
Audience Award, Environmental Film Festival at Yale
Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival

"Stunningly well-made...That rare documentary that actually shows us change. People and understandings, as well as climate and sexuality, are represented as fluid — messy and disruptive, but life-giving. This is an eco-film where science and technology, personal and political conflict, humility, love, and aesthetic virtuosity forge unexpected and beautiful alliances."  Marguerite Waller, Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies, University of California, Riverside

EVOLUTION OF ORGANIC
The story of organic agriculture, told by those in California who built the movement.
Vancouver International Film Festival

"Helps us understand how the current organic food system came to be, and urges the next generation to think of that system not solely as a source of nourishment, but as a pathway toward soil regeneration, social justice and entrepreneurial opportunity."
Gary S. Kleppel, Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences, University at Albany-SUNY, Owner/Operator, Longfield Farm

Follows one carpenter's journey to understand the trend toward giant houses. When he feels complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, he takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera.
Audience Award, Hamptons Take 2 Doc Film Festival
Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital

"This is a perceptive and moving account of the tension between individual property rights and community values, the importance of a sense of place and the hard work necessary to achieve political change."

Two childhood friends take an impromptu road trip attempting to uncover the causes of our current global crisis and discover a way to bring about change.
Best Feature, Colorado Environmental Film Festival
Palme d'Or, Deauville Green Awards, France

"The best documentary I have seen in years. Reviews the blinding elements of progress and technology, but more importantly we learn how nature, food, dreams, love, and joy feeds the internal shift to deep freedom — a shift necessary for us to help make the world better. Change is indeed coming and this upbeat film will help you with some tools to transform."
Randy Hayes, Founder, Rainforest Action Network, Director, Foundation Earth
