|A Progressive Voice |
I primarily document subjects and topics that speak to the political discord of today and promote progressive alternative viewpoints.
The show gives a voice and face to events, rallies, speakers and documents the many voices that are that are out there, often hidden away that are working towards progressive change in this country.The show will look at issues impacting our changing economy, political issues in the Middle East, weapons trafficking, issues impacting our environment such as access to clean air and water, access to healthcare, a more inclusive GLBTIQ/A community and medical issues of the body and mind to name a few.
Whether it is an interview, a speaker talking, a political rally or a more complete documentary, I believe that instead of receiving snippets of information that we have a chance to be a witness to the events often as they unfold, sometimes with minimal editing or have the chance to become more informative.
Within the progressive movement I have filmed such notable speakers such as Noam Chomsky, Dr. Helen Caldicott, Medea Benjamin, Paul Krugman, Cornell West, Maude Barlow, Chris Hedges, Judith Butler and many people who are active who may not be noticed.
