Director Statement

We won a few battles over the past 30 years, but the world is still going to hell in a hand basket. Stories, not statistics, motivate the unconverted, and I believe we can tell better stories through the lens than as the numbers-spewing advocate I used to be. I hope that by making memorable films we will attract the kind of attention that will motivate fellow humans to become agents for positive change.
