TELOS is my first feature-length documentary film that chronicles the unorthodox life and revolutionary work of Eugene Tssui, anti-establishment architect. Rejected by the status quo and embattled to defend his futuristic, yet naturalistic visions, Tssui finds unexpected allies in the small mountain town where he hopes to build his visionary architectural fantasia.
The film premiered at the Architecture and Design Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2014. Since then, TELOS has been shown at the film festivals around the world for the past two years. TELOS is now being broadcast on PBS. For more information, please visit http://www.telosmovie.com
Homecoming is a feature documentary film currently in production. The film tells the story of the atoll of Pukapuka through the intergenerational story of two bi-cultural women Johnny Frisbie and Amelia Borofsky who journey home after decades away. Facing modernization, environmental, and cultural loss, this 3sq km coral atoll has little contact with outsiders or tourists, and the native community follows a Polynesian way of life lost to most of the Pacific. This character-driven documentary follows the two women on their journey “home” offering a poetic meditation on race, climate change, memory and the universal journey towards wholeness.
