Taiga Zen

In summer of 2017, I returned to my homeland of Siberia to film the annual off-the-grid subsistence hunt trip by my parents.  In this film, I want to explore the deep spiritual connection the people of Siberia have with their land.  I experimented with new media in this project, filming it entirely on an iPhone. 

 

The film is currently in edit.

The Healing Plant

In 2017 I continued exploring the subject of alternative spirituality and the power of self-healing by spending two weeks in the Peruvian Amazon with a Shipibo ayahuasca healer Gaspar Rengifo.  The resulting film is an introduction to the experience, complete with the interviews from the shaman, his family and other attendees of the retreat.
