they were all there, homage to my father, Max Schaefer

AdminArtist Videos

This video was inspired by a dream I had shortly after my father’s death in December 1979. The background E sounds are recorded from a Continuum workshop with the late Emilie Conrad, the founder of Continuum Movement. I created the soundscape and video. It’s a meditation on death, mourning and the element of water which is fundamental to this piece as it is to all life. And most of all it’s an homage to my late father, Max Schaefer. Read More

Donny and Ursula

AdminArtist Videos

By Sharon Weil

A romantic-mishap adventure about seeds, survival and the Spark of Activism.

You’ll never see the world the same again when outlaw guerilla gardeners, belly dancing feminists, gun-crazy survivalists, comic book heroes and even Mother Earth herself team up against a nefarious agribusiness giant who means to hold the world hostage by owning all her seeds. Through Love, Donny and Ursula are ignited to heroic deeds beyond their imaginations and mere neurotic existence, with some help from the mycelium and its mushroom messengers.

Donny and Ursula Save the World will incite you to action while you’re having too much fun. Sign up for the revolution. Go to: http://donnyandursula.com
