          On July 24, 2011, the first same-sex marriages were performed in New York. I filmed some of the celebrations of both the couples who could finally get married, and everyday New Yorkers who stood outside the City Clerk's exit to cheer for these newlyweds and share in that joy.

            PSA describing the June 15, 2011 Holland City Council vote and the path forward. Written by Erin Wilson Directed by Seth Thompson Music by Ghost Heart and Everyday Pompeii http://untilloveisequal.com The City of Holland, Michigan spent a year researching how best to protect workers and residents. From fear of discrimination against sexual orientation and gender identity. On June 15, 2011, Holland City Council rejected this committee’s unanimous recommendation to protect the civil rights of this vulnerable minority. But there is reason for hope. Within days of the Holland City Council vote, hundreds of West Michigan residents formed a movement to plead with the city. To reconsider. Hundreds of voices became thousands, including executives from Herman Miller, Haworth, Johnson Controls and numerous smaller businesses from across Holland and the region. This movement has come to include city, community and religious leaders - Americans of every ethnicity and race: youth, seniors, artists, doctors, lawyers, veterans, mothers, fathers, and everyone in between. Asking for what’s moral, what’s best for the economy. Representing a Holland that is vibrant and welcoming. The future needs all of us. We need your voice.

This clip is during the No on Prop 8 protest rally on Saturday, November 8, 2008--four days after the passing of Prop 8. The evening march drew an unprecedented 12,000 people. After the crowd marched in a circle through the streets of the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles the police descended on the crowd via squad cars, motorcycles and on horseback to disperse the protesters. But while the cops expected to easily break up the crowd, these people were inspired. For more info about our film check out http://www.inspiredby8.com and http://www.facebook.com/inspiredmovie

                Dee Hibbert-Jones & Nomi Talisman, USA, 2010-11, 7:10 Min. I-140 explores issues of inequality and civil rights in immigration policies towards same sex couples using the artists’ own situation as subject. The video shows the artist-couple holding hand-made signs on the side of highways to describe their seven year-long, $40,000 struggle to keep Talisman legally in the US. The work utilizes static, full body shots in a landscape/ environment to highlight the powerlessness, passivity, isolation and endless waiting involved in immigration proceedings, as well as the public/ private contradictions inherent in their situation.
