I want to trust in people’s best intentions. I feel that if we employed and practiced empathy, we would all be in a better situation as a society. If we as a people are inherently good, then embracing that will allow us all to grow. Herein lies a problem. Not […]

PREMATURE EVALUATIONS: POOR AGNES 2017 dir. Navin Ramaswaran



This year’s Fantastic Fest was packed with documentaries and even threw in a few mockumentaries into the mix. As I’ve begun to cover more festivals, I’ve grown to understand that the documentary categories are where it is at! Where else can you learn so much about the world in such […]
