Spring and early summer has been busy with preparations and filming. We built the film van, and I took it out on several trips to communities stewarding the land.
I was given the wonderful opportunity to work with the root foragers near Spokane, and produced a 20 minute documentary short, just released on the videos page. Enjoy!
I’m currently preparing for a full year, traveling to communities that are protecting, stewarding, and developing sustainable relationships with ecosystems.
First, I’m building a mobile film van that runs on waste veggie oil and will open up opportunities to stay close to small communities for longer periods of time, while providing my own shelter and transportation.
Then, at the end of March, I’ll be filming in the steppe-lands in NE Washington, with a group of rewilders, backpacking and foraging edible spring roots, to develop a deeper interconnection between people and the land.
In the spring, I’d like to film in communities like Unist’ot’en and Lelu Island, where indigenous leadership is spearheading movements to protect ecosystems while educating and inspiring change.
I’d like to take some time to practice fishing and hunting in the spring, and to film organizations who are working to revitalize fish habitat, protect ecosystems for wildlife, and mentor youth.
I’m looking to make connections with small communities that want to tell their story of the land and the people. Please be in touch if you’d like some support and film coverage.
