FALL 2013
Production was completed on The Dispossessed. Post-production
begins this fall in Seattle, WA. The project documents various forms of cultural resistance in the face of a long history of colonial and post-colonial oppression.
At the center of this investigation are rural Vodou practices--a syncretic religious
system which yields a radical understanding of human relations to the physical and metaphysical realms. It is through this lens that a deeper understanding of the
complex history of social injustices in Haiti can be better understood.

The Houngan (Vodou spiritual leader) Extanta Aolee leads his followers into a cave in the mountains of Duchity. Historically, these remote caves were the dwelling places of slaves escaping French plantations. It is said the loa (spirits) reside in every cave in Haiti. The houngan Extanta Aolee leads a ceremony to summon the loa, Mase Mari, within the sacred cave.

SPRING 2012

The Search for Norumbega and America, America (2012) to premiere at the Indie Grits Film Festival in Columbia, SC.

The Search for Norumbega (2012; 16mm; 19:00; Georg Koszulinski)
On the earliest European maps of North America, the unexplored region of present-day Maine was often labeled “Norumbega.” The fabled land was said to be hidden within this vast wilderness, and numerous cartographies placed Norumbega along Maine’s Penobscot River. But did Norumbega ever actually exist, or was it simply a European projection onto an unknown North American landscape—the desire to imagine a space divorced from the problems of European history? If Norumbega was anything more than a mythologized landscape, the limits of knowledge fail to prove its existence. Perhaps the poetic capabilities of the moving image will manifest an alternative future geography—a Norumbega that exists beyond the limits of history, cartography, and nationality.



SCOTT CAMIL WILL NOT DIE

Synopsis:
For nearly 40 years, Scott Camil has worked as an educator and activist visiting classrooms and lecture halls speaking out against war as “organized murder.” Scott Camil Will Not Die focuses on Camil's work in these spaces, examining the intersections between Camil as historical figure, Camil as educator, and Camil as himself—a complex individual who struggles with the psychological traumas of war and refuses to be silenced.
