Dear Guardians
A short film about the volunteers — known as Temple Guardians — who watch over the Temple, a recurring monumental sculpture at the Burning Man festival. The film was directed by Ian MacKenzie.

The Sounds of Healing
Vibrational healing, long used in non-Western medicine is quietly making converts in Canada. An alternative to institutional medicine, many people experience profound physiological and psychological changes during sound vibration sessions. This doc film investigates and immerses viewers in first-hand participant experiences. How do focused sound vibrations change the way people feel?
