what an honor to meet directors @bcshenk and @jonshenk at the screening of @aninconvenienttruth // the film follows the passionate Al Gore and his attempt to persuade governmental leaders to invest in renewable energy. While editing this documentary they had to change one of the graphics because the hottest year on record had changed during the post production... #climatechangeisreal
My most current project is working as a Visiting Researcher at the International Center of Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) where I filmed a documentary on the preliminary impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities and the adaptation practices and methods of the resilient, innovative, and resourceful people of Bangladesh, who deal with climate change adaption daily. My team and I raised six thousand dollars in hopes to spread awareness of the social injustices of climate change, traveling into extremely rural areas of Southern Bangladesh to show how those most severely impacted upon are often those who have contributed the least to the problem. We spent 30 days in the field with a translator visiting the most rural parts of Bangladesh to witness mass erosion and severe flooding. We also spent time in Bangladesh's capital Dhaka, where we visited the slums that are inhabited by migrants who have traveled from the south of Bangladesh because they have lost their homes to erosion or flooding. We interviewed experts, affected Bangladeshis and regarded political leaders like, Dr. Saleemul Huq, the Director of ICCCAD and a Senior Fellow at the International Institute for Environment & Development (IIED), and Sarder Shafiqul Alam, a climate change expert and senior researcher. As well as attending an international renewable energy discussion where experts and political leaders from all around Asia and Europe shared adaption ideas and methods. Through this documentary, I hope to build solidarity between the Global North and the Global South not only on the issue of climate change but in realizing we are all citizens of the earth.

In 2015 Florida implemented a statewide Black Bear hunt after three years of the species being removed from the threatened list. Florida Black bears were originally eligible for the state's threatened list in 1974, where there were only 300- 500 Black bears across the state of Florida. The hunt was Florida state's first bear hunt in 21 years and the season only lasted two days until the state started to near their allotted quota of 320 bear, which number was set by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation commissioners, which was based on 2002 science and estimated black bear population of Florida. In all, 295 bears killed across the state of Florida, including 28 lactating mother bears were among the casualties, which means many 28-100 cubs no longer have the protection, support, or training the cubs need and deserve in order to survive.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Black Bear hunt was based on illogical claims and outdated evidence; the appointed committee, the disregard of Florida citizens opinion and the lack of scientific reasoning for this hunt has decreased the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation credibility because of the results of the special interests groups with monetary values that fueled the commission to proceed with invalid scientific reasoning for the hunt, in turn compelled animal activists and Florida citizens to partake in acts of using public outcry and forensic rhetoric to legally challenge the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation about their poorly attempt of conservation.

Sourcefilms loves aerial filming 🚁📽 harnesses on, helicopter doors off // cheers to teaming up with an incredible pilot to film aerial footage for our new documentary
Pilot James P Hunter flew us around downtown Miami all the way west towards Florida's Everglades to capture aerials of urban sprawl construction encroaching into natural habitat for neighboring wildlife. Human encroachment is damaging thousands of acres of natural habitat per minute.
The incredible adventure documentary Meru is now available! @jimmy_chin @mochinyc and @renan_ozturk captured and created a beautiful high stakes pursuit of the renowned alpinists, @jimmy_chin@conrad_anker @renan_ozturk who take on India's unconquered 21,000 ft sacred mountain, #merufilm
We were thrilled to be in a seminar with Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi at the 2015 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, North Carolina.
It was incredible meeting the team who is starting the "biggest rescue attempt ever." In the next 100 years, we could lose 50% of all the species left if we do not take action. Let's all join together and start with one thing you can do to take responsibility for our planet, our source of life, our home.

It was a lovely experience to meet this talented filmmaker, comedian and writer at New York's YoFi Film Festival. What an accomplished inspiration for young females. The Muslims Are Coming is a powerful and hilarious documentary about the prominent Islamophobia issue in America propelled by media and stereotypes. Director Negin Farsad uses the 'best weapon' comedy, to explore the tension towards Muslims.
Our documentary, A is for Armed is an official selection of New York's YoFi Film Festival.
Thank you for having us @yofifest // What a gratifying weekend filled with great artists and terrific films! // A is for Armed spreads awareness about gun violence on college campuses.
