      In 2010 I interviewed John Turner, a retired aerospace engineer, in his home in Los Angeles. He turned 94 that year. His wonderful interview was part of a larger feature film called The Elders that I completed in 2011. John's interview was 3 hours long, but only 7 minutes make it into the final film. This short project was an attempt to see if I could cut another short (very short) film from that interview that was just as compelling without using any of the previous 7 minutes of footage that I had used already. Working with the theme "heights" I felt this re-edit was appropriate and my subtle use requires the viewer to connect the book-ends at the beginning (footage of earth), and at the end (a description of John's space career). As outer space represents, for me, the ultimate "height," John articulates some lessons learned at the height of his own life without ever mentioning in this cut his life's work: safely putting mankind into orbit. Music is by Lee Strauss, and is from my film The Elders. http://www.theeldersfilm.com Thanks to NASA for the timelapse images.

                This is the story of a town which hearts reside on its music, its relationship with the Magdalena river in the Colombian Momposina’s Depression, a place where all the “Magic sub-realism” of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s books comes to life. This town has an ancient earthly music tradition called “TAMBORA” a music the rises from the “BEATS” of the alegre drums, la tambora bass drum, las maracas, but mostly from the “BEATS” of the hearts of every son and daughter of this land, whose voices give melody to the “TAMBORA” and whose clapping hands sheer every second of this ground shaking music called “TAMBORA”. This is the story of a struggle for surviving. A sound that does not wan to stop sounding; A people that does not want to let their ancestral traditions disappear in to the avalanche of globalization, A river that does not want to run dry for the contamination and deforestation of the industrial world; This is the struggle for keeping ones identity, for saving the soul of your land. This land is called SAN MARTIN DE LOBA, and its heart “BEATS” because of the sound of the “TAMBORA” without it this town will surely die, and a part of every one of us as well.

                    Description by David Koch http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/southafrica_46468.html JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 20 November 2008 – Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu – one of the world's foremost and best known defenders of human rights – has spoken out about the importance of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of its adoption. To reinvigorate awareness about the Declaration, Archbishop Tutu has recorded a public service announcement to support the ‘Every Human Has Rights’ campaign, a partnership initiative which aims to encourage global conversation about human rights and the values that unite us all. The Declaration, drafted in 1948 – just two years after the founding of the UN itself – was the world's first expression of the inalienable rights shared by all, regardless of colour or creed, gender or age. It established a common set of standards for human achievement for all people: freedom, equality, solidarity, tolerance, respect and shared responsibility. Today, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Declaration is the most translated document in the word, available in some 300 languages. Human rights for all People around the world can sign a petition of support for human rights and the Declaration by visiting http://www.everyhumanhasrights.org/. In advocating for greater engagement with the Declaration – in a far more challenging global environment than could have been imagined in 1948 – Archbishop Tutu is leveraging the tremendous recognition and respect accorded him as a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, the chairman of South Africa's post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and chair of The Elders. A group of global thinkers who contribute their wisdom, experience and integrity to address the world's greatest challenges, The Elders was founded by Archbishop Tutu, Nelson Mandela and Graça Machel in 2007. Among the 12 Elders are past presidents, Nobel laureates, prime ministers and peace advocates. The public service announcement, produced by UNICEF in collaboration with The Elders and the ‘Every Human Has Rights’ campaign, will be available to broadcasters, educational institutions, human rights organizations and others to promote the cause of universal human rights for all. The PSA will be released in advance of the anniversary of the Declaration, 10 December.
