1. the journey (a good land)
    When everything seems irremediable and lost, a meaningless life, nature seems to respond.
    This is a good earth and that is worth living.
    A reflection about the meaning of life, as a journey, and about the endless beauties that surround us.
    Along the way, there are also musical memories, the music that lasted from my adolescence, Cliff Richard, Uriah Heep and always Georges Delerue.
    Filmed in Nazaré, Vide, Serra do Larouco,
    Porto Covo, Setúbal, Portugal.
    Iguaçu, Brazil.
    Patagonia, Argentina.
    Quando tudo parece irremediável e perdido, sem sentido, a Natureza parece dar respostas.
    Esta é uma boa Terra e merece ser vivida.
    Uma reflexão sobre o sentido da vida, como uma viagem, e das belezas infindas que nos rodeiam.
    Pelo caminho, há também memórias musicais, das músicas que perduraram da minha adolescência, Cliff Richard, Uriah Heep e sempre Georges Delerue.
    Filmado em Nazaré, Vide, Serra do Larouco,
    Porto Covo, Setúbal, Portugal.
    Iguaçu, Brasil.
    Patagonia, Argentina.

  2. After the brutal attacks in Paris I wanted to post a creation to help with the healing.
    Dedicated to the souls of those who perished, were wounded and all those affected by the terror acts.
    "Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation"
    Hope it works for you, as it worked for me.

  3. Footnote 7: know

    No, not "know" in the Biblical sense. Get your mind out of the gutter! Besides, we have already covered my university wrestling coach quite sufficiently in footnote 3. No, we are concerned here with "know" in the sense of "knowledge," as it is used, for example, in this sentence: "I know the reader will find these footnotes useful." So yes, we can, in fact, look back to the Bible after all, specifically and exclusively in this one context: that infamous Paradisal tree.

    And the fact of the matter is, when I came to the Big City, it immediately became clear I was in some sort of latter-day late-20th century Paradise of my own, for which my short-lived University days had barely prepared me.. So there was much catching-up to do. I ensconced myself in a highly recommended West Village bar, cosmopolitan in hand (a strange but not unpleasant pink drink new to yours truly) and over the course of several hours, positively devoured in equal and prodigious amounts lots of pink fluid and glossy and surprisingly graphic sub-cultural literature that was freely available by the door.

    I was astounded by what I read. Remember, it was the early 80s and I was still shockingly naive. The number of venues out there available for obtaining anonymous knowledge -- all manner of bodies contorted, twisted and intertwined -- was absolutely dizzying. Why you could attend a different Anonymous Knowledge Center (hereafter "AKC") every night and not have to repeat yourself for upwards of a month! This was indeed Paradise and one that clearly embraced a new kind of scholarship of which i thoroughly approved.

  5. “65 is the average age of farmers, and there are not enough young farmers to replace them. How did we get here?”**

    In the summer of 2015, Eva Verbeeck asked me to join her on a trip throughout the Pacific Northwest to produce a short film on young farmers, that would accompany her photo story for a variety of publications. Having spent much time WWOOFing on organic farms, I knew the importance of this mission. So we loaded our iPods with old bluegrass music and set off in a 1990 Nissan truck, heading from Portland to British Columbia. We offered our labor in exchange for room and board at the farms that we made it to.

    This film is an attempt to express some of the thoughts and feelings of the young farmers that we stayed with. Hopefully a little bit of justice was done for all the young farmers out there.

    Infinite gratitude to all of the farms that hosted us this summer and kept us filled with organic produce and warmth:

    - Earth Candy Farm (facebook.com/earthcandyfarms)
    - Plenty Wild Farms (plentywild.ca)
    - Skyberry Farm (skyberryfarm.com)
    - Hoe Down CSA at Tulaberry Farm (hoedowncsa.wordpress.com)
    - Yummy Yards (yummyyards.ca)
    - Growing Veterans (growingveterans.org)
    - Beacon Food Forest (beaconfoodforest.org)

    The farmers narrating this film (in order of appearance):

    - Claire Jutras (Earth Candy Farm)
    - Alyssa Belter (Plenty Wild Farms)
    - Kate Rustemeyer (Hoe Down CSA at Tulaberry Farm)
    - Ellis Hroch (Earth Candy Farm)

    This doc was made for love, not for money. Always for love.

    (**The average age of farmers in Canada is roughly 54 and in the U.S., 57)
