The Documentary

The work we are creating builds on the work of those who have come before us. This isn’t the first such work, yet another contribution to the great work done by storytellers who have come before. To those works we give thanks and guide you to these works and put them in conversation with the work we are in the process of creating.

The documentary is a work in progress. We are shooting the documentary the calendar year 2022. It will be released in April of 2023.

The photos that support this work are also being shoot in 2022. The samples of the photos are posted here. The photo exhibition will debut in 2023 at Columbia Theological Seminary. A selection of the photos posted on this website will be the source for the exhibition.
