    A Hidden Life


    God with us, in the breeze.
    God with us, in the streams.
    God with us, in our longing.
    God with us, in our laughter.
    God with us, in our tears.
    God with us, in our confusion.

    This film is on spiritual levels matched only by films in the ranking of Silence and First Reformed, namely in talking about conviction, loneliness, and toil.

    Truly heartbreaking and heart-opening.

    Pain and Glory


    It’s like when you finally get a day to sleep in and you wake up, and everything seems so peaceful. You decide to sleep some more. You go in and out of dreams. You dream about that particularly blissful summer when you were a kid; the shimmer of the pool, your weightless hair swaying underwater.

    Patient, complicated—as most of life often is.

    The film really explores the core of what it means to long for something (or someone) that's gone and the attempt to hold onto any shred of existence that may entrench you deeper into the manifest memory of them.

    Florida Film Festival 2021: Short #22

    Something about the way the "progressive" dad interacted with his trans son—and was still so off-the-mark—really got me. It's often this way in life: well-intentioned people doing well-intentioned things that absolutely destroy our world, and the perpetrators are none the wiser.

    Fantastically written and directed.
