  2. this is an impressionistic portrait of glass and metal artist evan chambers. it is a glimpse, a stream of consciousness conversation amongst images, thoughts, time, and sounds. a collage of color, movement, emotion, and memory. its shape is circular rather than linear, and contemplates rhythm, repetition, and flow.

    screened at the 2012 humboldt film festival

  5. in the black and white world of this experimental memoir, being female has everything to do with getting manicures, loving smelly candles, and not being able to drive. even science says so. drawn instead to demolition derbies and physics, the film’s protagonist struggles to make her way from a comfortable childhood into an adult world in which she just doesn’t seem to fit.

    this short film is something of a coming of age tale about a girl struggling to escape the narrow and unfair definitions of femaleness established by a misogynistic world. turning first against women, then against herself, she finally realizes that the definitions—and not the women themselves—are the problem.
