I am currently working on two feature length documentaries. Incarcerated Rhythm is a feature-length documentary about six remarkable men who have been in prison for many years and joined a dance rehabilitation program that has never been tested before in the prison system. After serving 13-20 years in Woodbourne’s Correctional Facility in New York, they are free men today and have successfully transformed their lives and integrated themselves in the society today because someone believed in them and gave them hope. Phos Graphis: Ismail Hashim, is a feature length art documentary that explores the sensibility, temperament and aesthetics of a renowned photographer; and his influence within the region.
