Director and Producer: Michael de Yoanna
This is the trailer to the documentary film, “Recovering,” which I am directing and producing. The film follows the lives of troops coming home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, healing wounds such as post-traumatic stress disorder through bicycling. The film is slated to come out in 2014. If you want to know what it was like directing this film, you can read this essay, “Iraq Vets on the Road to Recovery,” which was published by Salon.com. Follow the film on Twitter: @RecoveringVets and @BecomeFilms and on Facebook: www.Facebook.com/becomefilms
Carolyn Kuban no longer plays her harp in the big symphony halls. Today, she plucks her harp’s strings for a much different audience: People on their deathbeds. Click here to listen to the Colorado Public Radio interview of Carolyn that I produced (hosted by Ryan Warner). And, above, watch the very short film — “The Golden Harp” — that I directed and produced with Brian Bernbaum (editor) and Sherry Hern (art director). The film was entered into the International Documentary Challenge in 2014.
