The deadline draws near for completion of my new film "9/11 Dust: A Healing Journey" and the date of the preview premier also gets closer (September 8). In order to fill the gap left by the primary funder pulling out "due to philosophical differences and the direction of the film", I launched a Kickstarter campaign to feed the rest of the process and get me to NYC for the premier. Please check it out and if you like what you see, please consider a donation to help me meet my goal of $1500.
This short documentary is a followup to my 2006 film “9/11 Dust and Deceit” about people who have suffered from the health effects of the toxic dust of September 11, 2001, many of whom are still not getting the health care they need. The film seeks to show solutions, and asks how those directly affected by illness, and all of us still grieving, can heal from 9/11.

One of the songs we performed at the Solstice Festival in Santa Barbara for the first time was "Fukushima" which I wrote thinking about how the government and officials act the same when disaster strikes, whether manmade or environmental; they don't tell the truth and it affects the health of people for years to come. Half way through writing the song, doing some research I found out that sunflowers absorb some radiation and were being planted by the millions in Japan.
