This work was produced during the pandemic while isolating at home. The video follows a boy's response to COVID-19. The boy participates in his community's "isolate, test, treat and trace" initiative, marked by red crosses on their homes.

Tribulations by Juan Menache, Florida, U.S.A.

2020, 1 min 50 sec.
I wanted to capture the feeling of flying in a dream. Upon researching this subject, I discovered that an important role in these dreams is the speed in which the clouds move. Clouds that move slowly in the air convey feelings of confusion and difficulties. In this film the speed of the clouds dictates the different locations which the dreamer travels through. Our eyes open and close as we glide through the unknown realm of space, an empty hallway, and an unspecified location, that makes the dream come to an unprecedented climax. juanmenache001.myportfolio.com

2018, 10 min.
Collaboration with filmmaker Mark DePasquale (USA), scientists Dr. Stuart Hodgetts and Dr. Carla Mellough (Australia), and sound designer Braden Bjella (Germany). Funded and made with the support of SymbioticA Centre of Excellence in Biological Arts and the University of Western Australia.

Nine security cameras successively fail, leaving it to the imagination of the viewer about how the creature of the teratoma will interact with the humans it is haunting. The film features laboratory grown Retinal Organoids made from Human Embryonic Stem Cells and laboratory grown teeth made from Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Stem cells were obtained from WiCell, as well as the tissue culture laboratory facilities of the Spinal Cord Repair Lab at the University of Western Australia. lyndseywalsh.com

2018, 58 sec
Film Location: The Deering Estate, Cutler, Miami, Florida.
I am a third generation born native of Miami, but my roots are from Scandinavia. We must honor the Paris Agreement if my home now, here, in South Florida is to have a chance. I walk with a staff given to me by a tribal Elder Medicine Man during the Walk for Future Generations lead by the Miccosukkee Seminole - an activist walk that stopped the development of the River of Grass Greenway which would have resulted in further damning up of the flow of the Everglades.

Horses by Thorkell A Ottarsson, Drammen, Norway

2018, 10 min 13 sec
Performer: Silje Michaela Kvalheim, Norway
Music: G.A. Membré, U.S.A.

The idea came when Norwegian dancer, Silje Michaela Kvalheim, told me that she likes to dance with wild animals. So we traveled to Denmark for two days to film at Hestenge Karina Bjerremann where these horses are not ridden and roam freely. G.A. Membré, who had previously written a score for a feature film I made, created an original composition for this film.
