      Every parent experiences moments of uncertainty: Am I terrible parent? Have I failed my children? Am I doing enough? But for these mothers, these natural uncertainties are magnified by their lost homeland, fragmented families and legal limbo.

            On November 2nd, 2008, the Avett Brothers, those venerable sons of NC, performed for a full house at Memorial Hall on UNC Chapel Hill campus. The crowd was eager to hear whatever the band brought forth, songs old and new. Here, Seth Avett performs "The Ballad of Love and Hate" from their 2007 release, Emotionalism. Cirque Productions and friends were on hand to shoot the entire show using five HD cameras. We grabbed a stereo board mix on one camera and set up a small hard drive recorder with some room mics on the balcony, and mixed the two in post for the audio. Camera Operators: Peter Bell, Brian Burnham, Daniel Pierce, Michael Cusack O'Connell, Leon Godwin. Edited by Leon Godwin. www.theavettbrothers.com www.cirquevideo.com

                  A nineteen-year-old dances on aerial fabrics suspended in the air while an 86-year-old grandmother waits in her bedroom with only dementia to keep her company. A group of 21 year-old girls explores the underground drainage system while a middle-aged woman makes pottery for her ailing mother. Mainstream media depict women as little more than beautiful, sexual, fragile creatures. This experimental documentary challenges that by following four powerful women, ranging in age from 19 to 86, as they embrace personal notions of femininity in everyday life. I created this video in response to the following JOMC 582 assignment: create a video from your point of view that incorporates the following words: self portrait, love, bird, waiting, shadow & alone.

                    We are obsessed with not dying. Whether by breaking the barriers of biology, praying for a place in the afterlife or simply ordering a headstone, the quest for immortality – even if subconscious – pervades cultures worldwide. As Robert C. W. Ettinger approached his 92nd birthday, he described the process he dedicated his life to in the hope that it will save him from his death. "Cryonics means very low temperature storage of legally dead people in the hope that eventually advanced technology will allow them to be revived and rejuvenated and restored to good health," he explained. "I think we'll start seeing revivals sometime between 50 and 200 years from now." Upon his legal death on July 23, 2011, Ettinger, known as the father of cryonics, became a patient at the Cryonics Institute he founded in 1976. His body is cryopreserved alongside his mother and two wives, awaiting revival. Similarly, Karen Moore knew it would not be the last she heard from her son when he waved goodbye before passing away on May 17, 2010. Thirty-year-old Adrian Moore-Pleasant died 16 months after being diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor. Before he passed, she assured him he would be happy on the other side. "I think when we die, it's just merely a shedding of the physical body," she explained. "The spirit goes on." "There are times when I'm envious of Adrian," Karen explained. "I would much rather be where he is than to be here." Rev. George Exoo has heard that sentiment many times. The former Unitarian Universalist minister and assisted suicide activist has been present when more than 100 people have ended their lives and has aided another 20 remotely. Before one of his patients passed, she told him she would send cockatoos as a sign she made it safely to the other side. He traveled with a friend on a sales call the day after helping her pass. He walked in to the house to find a cage full of cockatoos. "There she is," he said. "She's giving me the sign."
