The Dreamers

In 2019, I directed and produced a short documentary piece called, "The Dreamers".

“The Dreamers” follows three young women (Joee, Kayla and Maya) living in Nova Scotia on their quest to answer the question, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’

Joee is an LGBTQ performer & connector, Kayla a community activist, and Maya an actress and artiste.

Mr. Horizon

This Docu-Poem narrates a game played by time, time itself being a card played, that makes human existence both a tragedy and a comedy.

I produced and co-directed this piece (Hesam Hanafi, 2nd director) for Lunenburg Doc Festival; it played in December 2018.
