Reverence is the feeling of awe in the face of something greater than us. People from all cultures experience reverence, and the experience is accompanied by a sense of humbleness. With reverence, we treat each other and the world around us with respect. I am passionate about the natural world and seek to revere nature through the process of filmmaking. That is, hearing and feeling a place, then engaging with it. I hope that my films remind others of their natural propensity for reverence towards the land, as I feel when I think about the food I eat entering my bloodstream and replacing old tissue, or when I look up at a Redwood tree and acknowledge an organism that survived through immense environmental pressures over the course of one hundred human generations, organizing particles from the earth and atmosphere into something that supports and survives in ecosystems that we are only beginning to understand.
