In April I went to Topeka, Kansas and filmed a documentary at a maximum security women’s prison with my dear friend and filmmaker Mikal Shapiro. We spent a few weeks following Canadian Blues Goddess Rita Chiarelli as she workshopped songs and spoken word with the offenders in preparation for a concert we held at the Topeka Correctional Facility. I’m currently assistant editing on the project.
A big to do of mine this year was to start shooting on film. There’s a certain nostalgia to a film photo that completely enchants me. I bought a Pentax K1000 from a lovely woman on Craigslist and shot most of my first roll of film during this documentary. Check out the series called “My First Roll”
We filmed a short doc in 2017 and Kickstarted the project to go back and film a for a full length.
