Impartial

Impartial is a feature-length documentary that follows Adam (Producer & Director) on a journey to listen to worldviews different to his own. By first asking questions, Adam discovers that listening to another's opinion is an important prerequisite to sharing his own views. Adam is joined by close friends to help create, film, and edit the entire project as a team with varying backgrounds themselves.

With few determined conclusions, you can safely watch the film with an open mind and explore all that different views, to your own, have to offer. But can you remain Impartial and objectively listen to what each is saying?

Director Biography - Adam Collins, Kyle Hurley

ADAM COLLINS
Impartial is Adam's first film project. Adam's interest in filmmaking came at a time in his life when a major worldview shift was happening. At which time he realized the sheer power–both good and bad–of visual storytelling and sought to display his experiences through this medium. The thoughts, feelings, and conclusions of a person's opinions are touchy subjects to mess with. The common approach is to drive the storyteller's perspective home, however, Adam prefers to provoke to challenge with internal conflict; where the views presented are given for the audience to ascertain the conclusions.

KYLE HURLEY
Kyle is not new to film making but new to the role of Director. Kyle, was one of three others who came alongside Adam to create this film, and focused mainly on monitoring the technical aspects of the film's creation (lending a directional hand to story tell when needed). Kyle's experience in editing and his technical expertise allowed for creative freedom and much-needed guidance throughout production.

Adam & Kyle come from different worldview perspectives which created a healthy juxtapose, subliminally, throughout the film's narrative and ultimately lent to the unconventional, non-aggressive format, this film supposes. Impartial is a 3-year project where all crew members joined together to experience the journey while attempting to gain answers in every reasonable area they could reach.

Director Statement

Impartial is a documentary where a thought-provoking message challenges the audience while withholding obvious answers. The film was created in a way that no matter your worldview you can safely listen, while, maintaining enough depth to challenge even the most convinced. The movie was created to intentionally refrain from the traditional 'in your face' approach a documentary can sometimes provide. While experiencing the movie you will be taken on a candid journey with a group of friends who are content with listening to another's perspective without worrying about the answers that they may hear. We do not seek to provide all possible answers to every hard question, but instead seek to invoke questioning one's self.

Ask yourself, if you are confident in what you believe, why be afraid of another perspective? After all, if you are right, why would anything less than the truth be terrifying?

Most everyone is afraid to begin seeking truth claims, but Impartial is a safe introduction to questioning why we are here, what we should do, how we should do it, and where are we going?
