The Ruby Valley

The Ruby Valley (2016)

A story of community, and good will in the wake of complete destruction.

The devastating earthquake in Nepal on April 25th, 2015 killed nearly nine-thousand people and left almost three-million in need. Far up in Ganesh Himal, northern Himalaya, sits the steep Ruby Valley, where hundreds died and every home was reduced to rubble or rendered unsafe. A month had gone by and no help had come to anyone in this remote, nearly inaccessible place. So, a group of villagers found tarps, food, medicine and walked it there themselves, feeding and helping people along the way.

Idomeni

Once again the Greek - Macedonian border is congested with thousands of refugees who are not being allowed to pass further. As of now the camp, closed as of last-December, is now limbo to more than 10,000 refugees. This piece I directed last December takes place both the day before and the day of the camp's first full closure, and sheds a glance into the life that these people are currently living there, with no where else to go. 2016.

Canned Fit

Canned Fit (2016)

'You can close your eyes, but you cannot close your ears.'

Circuit-bending, motorized cans, sounding stovepipes, hand-made machines, metal, glass and minimalistic melodies make up a small part of the peculiar sound aesthetics in the art project Canned Fit, designed by Sound Artist Christine Schorkhuber. Past her love for the mechanical tinkering that generates the live tones and sounds she is celebrated for, 'Canned Fit' dives into what makes SOUND so important not just to her, but to all of us.
