About

My Project is to shoot a feature documentary film about this terrible injustice. This problem has been going on for many years and even though the Huichol Indians have defended themselves many times before, the Canadian mining corp. always seems to find a way to continue their exploitation.

I’m going to go to México with another cinematographer and a sound tech. There are two producers in México doing pre-production as we speak so that when we get there we can start interviewing all parties involved. I know the area very well so we will go deep into the desert of Wirikuta, the Sierra of Nayarit and Jalisco and talk to the head of the Huichol community to find out the history and the problems that exist today. We will go to the capital city of San Luis Potosí and interview the city officials responsible for this outrage.  We will also interview representatives of Canadian mining corp. to hear their position in all of this as well.

The Funds will be used to pay for our travel expenses, food and everyday costs. Will be able to cut cost because we own our equipment and we have places to stay in the area thanks to the support from our friends. I am a documentary filmmaker and know how much it costs to produce a movie of this kind, so we will worry about post production when we are ready to cross that bridge.

My Team consists of my friends that I consider family, all established professionals in their own right. We are all very familiar and extremely attached to this project because its very close to our hearts. This is our time to give back to the world we live in and we have a divine opportunity to change lives with the art of film. THANK YOU!

These are some beautiful examples of the Huichol art and some of the rewards listed. Thank you so much for your time and support.

The Huichol are among the most magical, mystical people in the world, this is how they see the world.

By helping us make this documentary film we will also help promote their incredible art around the world and help out in their community.

Thank you so much for your help.

THANK YOU!
