The state of Fresh York, where Alana lives, has the lowest number of organ donors in the country, and because of her complex medical background, her possibilities of finding a donor match were incredibly slim.

If the transplant is a success, Alana will triple her life expectancy and be freed from nightly dialysis. But if it fails, Lori will go through dangerous surgery and lose a healthy organ in vain.

Katjira's Two Funerals #

Released 11/18/2010

Description: Master griot Katjira’s death, which is the beginning of this film, sets off a series of discussions within his tribe about the future of the tribe and particularly about who katjira’s successor could be. A decade after Katjira’s death no successor has been found. Will the himba die out because there is no storyline teller alive to say the storyline of the himba’s creation, thereby keeping the tribe alive? Or will Katjira somehow speak from beyond the grave, from the zone of absolute reality, in order to re-iterate the continuity of the tribe. More than ten years in the making, Craig Matthew’s documentary is a strong and special example of how a contemporary medium like movie can be utilised as an extension of the oral tradition.

The Ancient Woods #

Released 3/18/2018

Description: A poetic and atypical nature movie about the different inhabitants of an old-growth forest, on the ground, in the air and in the water. There's no commentary, only the rich, almost palpable sounds of the forest and the magical cases captured by the camera. Although we might sometimes be puzzled as to what's now happening—a mating ritual or the begin of a fight?—the lack of explanation leaves zone for us to associate freely and simply experience the images. The movie offers a close-up view of a wide range of creatures—such as the insect that appears out of the melting snow, gradually starts to transport and impatiently waits until all its legs are gratis so it can fly away. The scale of the portraits is sometimes grand and at another times modest, but everytime filmed with precision, whether in daylight or at night. Time doesn’t seem to matter in this extraordinary piece of slow cinema.

Above the Drowning Sea Reviews:

Above the Drowning Sea addresses and interweaves five topics, and does so beautifully and intelligently - Refugees; the lives of Jews in Austria as Hitler was gaining power; Ho Feng Shan, the "Chinese Schindler" who virtually single-handedly saved the lives of thousands of Jews; the exodus of Jews to Shanghai during the Nazi era; and finally, what happened to these Jews after they got to Shanghai. I saw this movie in a packed film theatre, and should say that many were moved by it by the stifled sniffles and quiet sobs. I stayed quiet, unless I unknowingly made some noise wiping away my tears. But as the credits started rolling I explode into applause, same as a lot of people. It's not clear from the movie how many visas Mr. Ho - the Chinese consulate general in Vienna at the time - issued to Jews trying to flee Nazi enslavement, but according to Wikipedia, Mr. Ho "risked his life and career to save more than 3,000 Jews by issuing them visas, disobeying the instruction of his superiors." According to an article in China Daily, Mr. Ho's daughter Ho Manli told that close to 4,000 visas were issued about a year after the annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany in March of 1938. "How many more were issued in the remaining months before the outbreak of Globe Fight II on September 1, 1939, when routes of escape began to shut down, is difficult to determine, she added."
