Just the Way You Are

1 Views
I drove up to Dallas a few months ago to take care of my mother while she recovered from a bad case of the flu.



Spending a few weeks quiet weeks in the house I grew up in, I became entranced in the Twitch Mister Rogers marathon.

To my surprise, I kept tuning in to watch episodes of the show.

Something about the quiet, meditative, sincerity was deeply moving to me.

Growing up I had vague memories of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, but watching his program now as an adult and as a filmmaker I was fascinated by the degree of sophistication and discipline Rogers brought to his show.

Learning more about his thinking and his background revealed to me a deeply thoughtful man. A man who had found a way to work completely against the grain of the medium and the culture.

As filmmakers there is something inspiring about such an example. Someone totally uninterested in spectacle or ubiquity. Someone interested in depth, and in forming significant human connections.

I came to see Fred Rogers’ cinema as an act of sincere communication from one individual to another. His neighborhood was a space where silence and kindness are valued, not because they get good ratings, but because they are essential to our experience as human beings.

Ferryman at the Wall

A visitor’s guide to America’s great big border wall.

Originally proposed as an international peace park with Mexico, Big Bend, Texas has a unique relationship with its southern neighbor. For the past 40 years, Mike Davidson has been ferrying tourists across the Rio Grande for a little taste of Mexican life — but now a great big border wall might divide the park.

The Filmmaker’s Voice: George Lucas

Should a man’s life be defined by Jar Jar Binks? George Lucas is not a perfect filmmaker. But he is a genius. A genius who is able to communicate the best and worst of our common nature, and has done so in an unprecedented, universal cinematic language. Few have been able to equal his artistic success, because frankly, he makes it look easy.

I made this video essay to provide a window into the mind of a socially conscious filmmaker who explored ideas about our common existence and tried to present them to in new, interesting ways to audiences. His goal was never to make an escapist film solely for the special effects and explosions, but it was to give his audiences a greater understanding of our shared humanity.

True, he sometimes fell short. “Attack of the Clones” is a bit weird, to be sure. But he was always true to himself, his voice and his stories. All this to say: I would rather watch a flawed movie by an imperfect genius than a movie made by a voiceless committee.

The Kill List

1 Views
President Donald Trump told Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte that he was doing an “unbelievable job” fighting drugs in the country. Duterte promised to end drug use in the Philippines by killing drug dealers and users. A year into his term, thousands of people have died — and Duterte continues to earn historically high approval ratings. As the nation’s police force carries out his bloody anti-drug campaign, it leaves behind a wake of grief in the families of those killed, and a portrait of the price the nation is willing to pay to bring discipline and order to the country.
