I’ve taken up a hobby of recording motion as I move through the world, and I edit this into what most call “videos” or “movies,” and the more pretentious (or formal) would call “films.” I don’t pretend to be a filmmaker, but this is some documentation of my journey through this latter part of my life. The videos are accompanied by notes to orient the viewer.
NEW! In the Shadow of the Revolution
Our new movie (Venezuelan filmmaker Arturo Albarrán and I teamed up on this one) is now online and available for download and viewing. It’s a look at the crisis in Venezuela from the perspective of left social movements and left political activists of the opposition. It gives lie to the Bolivarian narrative that a left government is under attack by a right wing opposition allied with the “empire.” Those interviewed in the film have a very different take on what’s happening in Venezuela and they coincide in seeing the struggle as a one between a right wing mafia in control of the State at war with the people at the bottom.
