With 15 years of experience in the fields of education and filmmaking, Nich's work, mostly in the realm of nonprofit media and documentary, have been selected in various film festivals, including (In)Justice For All, Great Lakes, River Bend, NXMW and One Nation Film Festivals.

Director Statement

"There are always beautiful stories to tell; it is part of our human condition and the nature of our reality. The challenge is how to capture them and turn them into images and sound in light of what is true and just. This can only happen if we allow our audiences to be transformed by what we make. That is the power of art - to inspire, to challenge and give others a reason to continue to tell their stories
