/Direct Route/ is a film about a blind woman (Director Pam Minty's 
mother) navigating her domestic surroundings and landscapes while 
recollecting these places prior to losing her vision. Through 
conversations and word puzzles, a story emerges about the relationship 
between memory, sense of direction, and the texture of experience. 
/Direct Route was funded in part by the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, 
Harold & Arlene Schnitzer Care Foundation, and the Puffin Foundation.

/*Hers Is Where Yours Begins,*/ 2015, 5 minutes, World Premiere
/Hers Is Where Yours Begins/ explores a teenager's journey following the 
death of her mother from angry rebellion into a reluctant kind of 
grace. Mingling a sense of drowning with a sense of dreaming, the film 
combines music, dance, underwater and archival footage to grab its truth 
by the neck. Featuring cinematography by Marcus Swanson, choreography by 
Tracey Durbin and an original score by Steve Wilkinson. /Made possible 
in part with support from the Regional Arts & Culture Council./
