*My feature film What We Left Unfinished is now streaming on demand across the US and also still in North American virtual theatrical release in some areas. Check Dekanalog for the latest info on how to watch the film in the US; contact Good Docs to book an educational or museum screening in the US/UK/AUS/NZ, and Arsenal to book screenings elsewhere.

All proceeds from streaming ticket sales purchased via this link will go to the Afghan Women’s Network and Women for Afghan Women’s emergency funds, as will proceeds from ticket sales at many lovely local theaters that are matching this initiative from the folks at Dekanalog.
