I’m looking for filmmakers based in Shanghai to work with on some smaller-scale, documentary style research & film projects. Interested or know someone who may be good? I’d appreciate any recommendations! You can message me here or email@example.com.

We are, as a species, addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories. — Jonathan Gottschall, The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human (via thatkindofwoman)

My life at the moment… I do not want to change anything. It is so fragile that when I lay in bed at night, I can imagine it could change someday. I don’t want that at all. What I have is already so wonderful that I do not want to change a thing. —
A favorite line from a participant who was kind enough to share his story for Words Vietnam (we’re working on the films now and they’ll be released in a few weeks).
These words mean so much for a father who is the first generation to work and live and dream for himself and his young family in a new Vietnam. These words mean so much to anyone who is working and living and dreaming for something more, in whatever context they’re doing it.
How fragile is happiness. How strongly we hold on to the moments when it’s somehow felt and happening and we hope that it will never change.
