In 2017, British Columbia, Canada was ravaged by a record-breaking 10 week state of emergency, with wildfires destroying homes and endangering lives of both citizens and their pets.

This film takes viewers inside the challenges of animal disaster rescue, and inside the mind of someone who spent nearly 2 months rescuing pets and farm animals in the face of BC’s worst ever natural disaster.

No Man’s Land – Short Documentary

A solo dancer explores an unusual urban beach in the East River of New York City. This location naturally draws the attention of visitors to Stuyvesant Cove Park, but few are aware of its history as the ruin of a 20th-century concrete factory. The dancer’s inhabitation of this generally empty spot showcases its inherent poetry, at a crucial moment when the landscape is on the brink of development and change. Her intimate journey in a unique natural/industrial ecosystem, amid the vastness of New York City, taps into city-dwellers’ yearnings for nature and freedom.
