On August 9th, Mike Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old black man was shot and killed by officer Darren Wilson. FERGUSON: No Justice, No Peace follows the next few days as protests grip the town of Ferguson, both during the day as organized rallies for justice, and at night as a militarized police force attempts to silence the people of Ferguson.
TILT is a project of the Ninth Street Independent Film Center, and I work with them to teach film production and media literacy to students of all ages, from as young as 7-9 to 55 and above. These reels I cut for TILT cover their variety of programs, from Generations (an Intergenerational LGBT film-making program whose completed works screen at the Frameline, the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival), to their Mobile Media lab to their Expressions program which covers experimental and short narrative films.
In 2012 I had the pleasure of working with Tracing Figures, a great SF band, as they were recording a four-song EP at Tiny Telephone. I filmed and edited this documentary on the band and their experience and wish them all the luck in the world with their amazing music.
Check out my documentary below and be sure to visit their website and get the new EP here.
