Chicken and Egg Pictures - a great "incubator" of social issue films by women filmmakers - just awarded Under Water's Mercy a grant from its WHICH CAME FIRST environmental film fund. We're very excited to be picking up speed as we bring the film to completion. Stay tuned for more information... including a final title!
This Thursday evening the Center for Independent Documentary is hosting a rough cut screening of Under Water's Mercy, a film by Sharon Linezo Hong that I'm editing and co-producing. The film tells the story of a young Native American woman who returns to her family in Louisiana and finds a man-made environmental crisis threatening their way of life.
