THE PAST IS A FOREIGN COUNTRY (2009) 46 min

In April 1989, a body floats down the Colorado River with a bullet wound in the back of its head. That body is John H. Jenkins, rare book and historical document dealer. He had been at the epicenter of one of the largest document-forgery scandals in Texas history and his death (legally ruled suicide) is the start of a journey deep upriver into that exotic kingdom known as the past. THE PAST IS A FOREIGN COUNTRY is a semi-fictional documentary about forged historical documents, murder and time travel (not necessarily in that order).

“THE PAST IS A FOREIGN COUNTRY is an intriguing mystery that plays with history. A documentary that takes a strange case and explores it through even stranger characters and a dynamic structure.” - David Gordon Green (director of HALLOWEEN, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, GEORGE WASHINGTON)

ENVY (2015) 4 min

Twelve images in 3,900 fragments. A hymn to the most universal of human emotions, in all its stroboscopic glory. Music by The Able Sea. WARNING: Contains rapid flashing and strobing images. This is not recommended for individuals with epilepsy or who have a history of seizure disorders.

“Void Emptiness”: “Underrated, masterpiece with video.” - Random Youtube review from user
