CALL OF THE ANCIENT MARINER is a new documentary film by David Weintraub taking the viewer on a fascinating exploration of sea turtles and human culture. Thousands of cultures have been captivated by this iconic creature making the turtle their totem, their deity, their inspiration for wisdom, fertility and longevity. As a result, man's first writing was done on the back of a turtle shell, the first known coin has a sea turtle on it. The Maya based their sophisticated astronomical based on the scutes of a turtle. Mariner documents these spellbinding historical connections and what they mean for us today and how they inform our current conservation efforts.

GUARDIANS OF OUR TROUBLED WATERS reveals the close connections man has had with its rivers for thousands of years, the destruction that resulted during the industrial era and the heroes, yesterday and today, who rose to challenge the damage that was caused. So much of our quality of life today is as a result of those guardians. So much of our future depends on us not taking our waterways for granted.

The Land Still Speaks To Us is the first in a series of documentaries on mountain heritage spoken by the voices of elders in Western North Carolina. The film depicts the agricultural life that was lived not very long ago, how people prepared their food, connected to family, community, land and faith and what it means to them today to continue their traditions. Will we carry on the torch or let this vibrant cultural legacy disappear in the fog of modern conveniences?
