Karen,
I'm sure your soundtrack is way cooked by now, but thought I would go
ahead and recommend composer David Harris, who did the soundtrack for a
doc called SEOUL TRAIN. I haven't worked with him, but the soundtrack
he did for that film was extraordinary and unforgettable!! You can
contact him via the filmmakers info@seoultrain.com.

Hi I'm in the process of directing a documentary about an Iranian
asylum seeker in Britain. I wanted to know if anyone has footage of
Iran such as images of crisis, prisoners, for more information about
the footage please do write to me. The footage will give some visual
context for the reasons he had to leave Iran in 1995. I'm very sorry
to say there is no funding available for the project. Thanks Corine

From growing up dirt-poor in a small Southern town to working the
streets of Washington DC, Tom Lewis had left no stone unturned
looking for redemption. He eventually finds it "fishing in the rivers
of the mind."

STILL CALLING by Steven Holloway
In an accelerated mass media age, is it still possible to stop and
reflect deeply about the world? Artists in a variety of disciplines
share how they have found meaning in their creations. This visual
meditation considers the questions, "What is beauty? What is faith?
What is art?"

These public workshops are organized by Docs in Progress and
