      This short documentary is about Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" (1906) and the food safety and labor reforms the "muckraking" novel affected. I created this video in 2011 and it won first place for Individual Documentary at the Florida History Fair in Tallahassee. I then went on to compete on the national level in Washington, D.C. (National History Day). This was the third historical documentary I created to win at the school and county levels and move on to the state History Fair. I hope you enjoy it! 1st Place Ernest Britt Rumble in the Jungle: Upton Sinclair and the Fight for Reform Spruce Creek High School (Volusia); Teacher: Nicholas Prince http://www.fldoe.org/successstories/2011/05-13.asp

          Memory Machine is a mixed media experimental narrative film which is a part of a body of artwork exploring the collective experience of memory. Water, the operative metaphor, is the vehicle of the remembering mind. Memory is slippery and inexact, transitive, and empowering. It inserts a reality of a different time into the present. It is the solid fabric that we contend to be both the proof of our existence and the uniqueness of our personal story. We are a species that spends its lifetime documenting our individual existence. This need for external proof of our selves and our stories is reflected in our photographs, home movies, possessions (objects), achievements, our children.

                      LIVING MUSIC FOR GOLDEN MOUNTAINS is a touching portrait of Leo Lew, an immigrant who toiled as a laundry worker but kept spiritually alive through his love of music. In 1936, Mr. Lew immigrated to America, the "land of golden mountains," from his native southern China. He came seeking fortune but discovered instead a mission closer to his heart – passing on the deep-rooted traditions of Cantonese folk music to new generations of Chinese Americans. LIVING MUSIC FOR GOLDEN MOUNTAINS traces Lew's life in America and shows some of the many problems facing the elderly in San Francisco's Chinatown. It also celebrates his enduring love of his native music and his commitment to sharing that love with young Chinese Americans eager to know their cultural heritage. Highlights include several of his virtuosos performances, both solo and with an ensemble he directs, as well as a revealing teaching session that shows how he works with and motivates his young students. LIVING MUSIC FOR GOLDEN MOUNTAINS was produced by Arthur Dong and Elizabeth Meyer, and marks Dong's documentary directorial debut, earning the young filmmakers a 1981 Student Academy Award® nomination for best documentary. This version was re-edited by the director in 2010. Visit the film's web page: http://deepfocusproductions.com/living_music_for_golden_mountain.php
