This twenty minute documentary follows an international team of Salvadorian activists and Michigan engineers as they construct a badly needed bridge for the small village of Gualindo Arriba, El Salvador. The rainy season would consistently cut off the town's access to commerce, education and healthcare, and this bridge now allows them to remain connected to the world.

My friend Marc Wurtzel accompanied the engineering crew on their final trip to El Salvador, and returned with literally hours of great footage. We worked together to find an arc for the story, agreeing that his on-the-fly narration and ever tangible guy-with-a-camera presence lent the project a unique immediacy. After weeks of editing, dubbing and composing original music, I rendered our short mediation on community, both local and global--the only difference being perspective.
