About this submission

Anchored in the planned 2021 production of a 10 to 12-minute documentary, RECLAIMED delivers hope for our future with a hard-won lesson: 'Nature + Science = A Better Future." Three segments lead to optimism based in reality as the planned core of the story flows from 1) the travesty of over-grazing land for cattle, to 2) the incredible power of biology to thrive and create new, adapted forms of cells, and finally 3) the pioneering work of actually 'growing' leather sustainably in a warehouse in Brooklyn. With formative commentary from a noted anthropologist and archaeologist on why humans often push their natural surroundings beyond the breaking point, this documentary can be produced safely in a COVID-19 environment. All to challenge, inform, and motivate creative thinking on personal, community, and corporate levels. And featuring the work of noted cinematographer and producer, Rhett Cutrell, as central to bringing the RECLAIMED mission to life.

More intent on positive outcomes for people and communities, with the energy I'd found in doing international development work centered on indigenous women's cooperatives in Central America and beyond. more...
