  2. THE ADULTS IN THE ROOM is a hybrid documentary film that examines a relationship that filmmaker had as a teenager with an older man, while exploring his life in the present through the production of a narrative film about those events. This two minute promotional trailer illustrates the way that these two story lines—the past relayed through scripted narrative, and the present through verité documentary—inform and support each other, painting a rich tableau of the ways that two men have intersected each others' lives over the course of a decade. theadultsintheroommovie.com

In an effort to understand what happened, Andy reached out to his attackers, revealing the ways that fear affects all of our lives.

  5. When Andy and John went from friends to lovers, they agreed upon a date to end that relationship in advance. No tearful goodbyes, no surprises. No such luck. By examining one very unorthodox pairing through interviews, conversations, and re-enactments, THE PULL reveals the difficulties inherent in all relationships when the litmus test for romantic success is being together forever. Official Selection, Hot Docs Film Festival, 2008.
