Director Statement

My films deal with the themes of colonialism and capitalism via structural power. My work has looked at borders, the military industrial complex, the carbon market and agricultural land grabs. When asked, I chuckle and say that my films explore how greed is destroying the planet and everyone on it. While the subject for each film is different, I remain committed to the proposition that if people understand the situation, they can take action and change the world.

Over the last 18 months while of presenting NO LAND, NO FOOD, NO LIFE and THE CARBON RUSH at various screenings around the world, I have become uncomfortably conscious of how audiences react to the films. People learn a tremendous amount from them. They are shocked, stunned and often paralyzed with fear by what they are seeing and what they are feeling. Shock then turns to despair or anger. But anger is a luxury that is only afforded to those that who believe, at least a tiny bit, that they can do something to make things right. In the past I would been disappointed to see how many people react to my films with despair to my films rather than anger. Now I have come to understand a deeper truism. An emotion even more powerful than anger, one that can transform spectators into agents of change, is hope. Hope creates possibilities. Hope instills in us a sense of expectation and anticipation that what we want can come true. TOMORROW’S POWER will be the much needed film to explain our worldwide addiction to fossil fuels and the its relationship to climate change, but it will also empower and motivate: It will inspire its viewers to work hard and persist even in the face of massive obstacles, setbacks and failures.

The choice to develop TOMORROW’S POWER was a matter of following my heart, my intuition, my true inner voice. Each person is here on this planet for such a limited time so it is crucial to do what we can, with the gifts we are given. With all my courage I am answering the call to make a documentary that will not only elucidate and educate but also inspire and bring HOPE to what is, unquestionably, a tremendously dire situation for humanity.
