“You Are Your Body // You Are Not Your Body”

The Evans family has never been happy. After a decade of estrangement,
it takes the death of Dinah Evans to bring her four children back
together. As old tensions threaten to destroy the calm that each sibling
has struggled to maintain, salvation presents itself in an unlikely
form: a mysterious woman who inspires unwavering devotion enters their
lives, offering freedom from all pain.

But as her cult
closes in on the siblings, the vacant eyes and plaster smiles of her
followers beg the question: is freedom from suffering worth the cost?

“License to Operate”

Shot over the summer of 2013, LTO: License to Operate is a
feature-length documentary about former gang members who have come
together on a mission to stop the violence they were once a part of.
These men earned a “license to operate” based on their histories as
leaders in their respective gangs. This status now empowers them to
negotiate on behalf of the community, resolving conflicts and limiting
retaliation killings. In a genre that focuses on violence, License to
Operate is about a viable, working solution coming from within.
