BREATHE, an Official Selection in the Lift-Off Sessions!

“BREATHE,” the short film I adapted from our crowd-sourced youth ecopoem, is an Official Selection in the Lift-Off Sessions Film Festival and First-Time Filmmaker Sessions running from 8/23 to 9/6!! Congratulations to the students from the Jefferson, San Mateo & Sequioa school districts who participated in this project and Happy #InternationalYouthDay!

*BREATHE, the first in a series of short films exploring the layered connections between nature and culture through poetry, is made possible by The Academy of American Poets with funds from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
