Telling STORIES THAT MATTER
Visual films are incredibly powerful. They allow us to connect with people we may never meet--in different times and in different places we may never go. They allow us to enter into their space, and feel what they feel.
Listening is the first step to changing the world. But in order to listen, we need a story to hear. It is a privilege for me to be able to tell the stories of people whose voices might not be heard otherwise.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
PARTNERS FOR NEPAL
In March 2015, my brother and I traveled to Nepal to tell the story of a pastor we knew who was caring for a group of orphans in desperate need, but lacked the resources to build a home for them. We created our first short documentary, started a non-profit. Thanks to many generous donors, an orphanage was built, and 27 kids received monthly sponsors! This is the trailer for it's debut at our church in 2015.
Check out our website to see the film and the ongoing work in Nepal.
