Alone, The Earth Plane follows her instincts through a twisty windy hallway looking to connect an alluring call to her.

DREAMSTATES: Equal parts love story, road movie, and Americana, DREAMSTATES tells the haunting tale of two wayward souls discovering their love for one another in their dreams and reality while touring the United States with some of the most pivotal figures of the Afro-Punk movement – Sultry, sensual, and quixotic, an underground portrait of America: haunted and hollow.

ELZA: ELZA is a riveting, deeply personal story about the emotional journey of a young Parisian woman returning home to her native island of Guadeloupe. Bernadette has tried hard to give her daughter everything. She is thrilled when Elza, the first college graduate in the family, completes her master’s degree.

By order of local authorities, police dropped military-grade explosives onto a MOVE-occupied rowhouse.

It was only later discovered that authorities decided to “…let the fire burn.”
