Editorial projects over the past year have involved journeys to France's Dordogne Valley, Peru, the Falklands, the Antarctic island of South Georgia and Antigua, Guatemala. Feature stories and films resulting from these projects are available to share. Upcoming destination in 2018 is the beautiful country of Oman— a blend of traditional and contemporary cultures— on the Arabian Peninsula. Ethiopia and Pakistan are possibilities for 2019.
Our short documentary film on Iran was recently selected for screening in the 9th Annual Iranian Film Festival in San Francisco. This was an unexpected honor. Iranians take filmmaking seriously—and their country has produced some of the world’s finest directors and screenwriters. Another film, titled The Dream Revisited, Civil Rights in Perspective, had its premier screening at the Harvey B. Gantt Center in Charlotte, N.C. before a standing-room-only audience in 2017. Other venues will be screening the film in 2018.
