My work spans a wide range of forms and styles, from essayistic documentaries and micro-budget narrative features to avant-garde films and videos. The experimental works utilize found images, hand-made film developing techniques, video glitching, and whatever formal means necessary in order to explore the limits of the cinematic apparatus. Collectively, these works operate on the premise that the logic of moving images can reveal truths about the historical world, and invoke our collective capacity to imagine alternative futures. The long form works have explored a wide range of subjects, including the history of Florida, migrant labor issues, tourist spaces, American highways, and most recently, the life and work of combat marine and peace activist, Scott Camil.
Notable screening spaces include the Anthology Film Archives, Harvard Film Archive, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, PDX Film Festival, FLEX, and the UK’s National Media Museum. The Florida documentaries Cracker Crazy (2007) and Immokalee U.S.A. (2008) screened at film festivals and universities worldwide, won top honors at numerous film festivals, and Cracker earned a "Notable Video of the Year" nomination from the American Library Association. The Documentary Channel distributes both videos. Among the experimental works, America in Pictures was an opening night selection at the 2008 Ann Arbor Film Festival, and Fragments from an Endless War was recently released by The Journal of Short Film and Video.
