  2. Lyrical and spellbinding, EMBRACING EARTH shows dancers, under the artistic direction of acclaimed choreographer Anna Halprin (winner of American Dance Festival's 1997 Lifetime Achievement Award), moving with the shapes, rhythms and textures of nature. Intimate and meditative imagery transports the viewer to a place where self and environment merge, to a point of understanding that the forces of nature move within us, not just outside of us. EMBRACING EARTH is a meditation on nature, and an evocative tool for inspiring dancers and all artists to explore the depth and source of their own creativity. (1995, 23 min.)

  5. A young mother, much loved in her hometown of Mesopotamia, St. Vincent, is brutally shot to death in this poor Caribbean village the day before she is to give court testimony against a man accused of raping her. Circumstances point to the accused rapist as the killer, but he is set free for lack of evidence. The townsfolk and victim's family talk poignantly about their fears and their longing for justice, both vigilante and divine. "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth," originating in ancient Mesopotamia, takes on modern-day meaning in a forgotten village of the same name.

    (2005, 15 min.)
