Director Statement

I've been thinking about the premise of Landfill for years, as I've taught environmental literature and pondered the durability of our waste. Our consume-and-discard culture is more revealing of our values than any museum exhibit, and I wanted to explore what it will mean to future generations who must get by with less. I wrote a feature film script, which got some attention but no buyer, so I launched the short film production with profound help from my friends at WIFV-DC. I wrote, produced, and directed the film. My friends did everything else -- here's to collaboration.
