  2. 'Dispatches from the Vietnam War: Beer, Bunkers and Typewriters' follows the surreal and existential journey of a young soldier entering war for the first time.

    Not long after I first met Lloyd I started hearing stories about his time in Vietnam during the war. Each one cut through the archetypes I had often heard about the war and wars in general. Each one insightful and nuanced. Each one led to a desire to hear more.

    Details behind why he volunteered to join the Army; what it was like for him to fly on an airplane for the first time, let alone one heading to war; and his transition from Vietnam home were left out due to time constraints. So too were a few other stories. Perhaps those will be shared at a later date.

    What remains are three stories that pull you into a world of a young man navigating the paradoxes of conflict at a pivotal time in his life.

  4. Gill & Gill is both visual essay and visceral poem, a celebration and an exploration of our relationship with stone and craft. It compares two masters of the material: one of rock climbing, the other of letter carving.

    Eric Gill and John Gill were the respective fathers of modern letter carving and bouldering. One shaped, the other scaled, but why did stone speak to them both?

    By way of answer this film, narrated by the acclaimed British actor Clive Russell, follows their twenty-first century successors: Richard Kindersley, world-renowned letter carver, and Lucy Creamer, Britain’s most accomplished female climber.

    Winner of the New Faces Prize at the Japan Media Arts Festival and hosted on Minute App.

  5. Im March 1933, within weeks of his inauguration, President Franklin Roosevelt sent legislation to Congress aimed at profiting relief for the one out of every four American workers who were unemployed. He proposed a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to provide jobs in natural resource conservation. Over the next decade, the CCC put more than three million young men to work in the nation's forests, parks, and farms: planting trees, creating flood barriers, fighting fires, and building roads and trails. Corps workers lived in camps under quasi-military discipline and received a wage of $30 per month, $25 of which they were required to send home to their families. This film, by director Robert Stone, interweaves rich archival imagery with the personal accounts of CCC veterans to tell the story of one of the boldest and most popular New Deal experiments, positioning it as a pivotal moment in the emergence of modern environmentalism and national service.
