We’re releasing a new film every two weeks. At the bottom of this page you can see when the next release takes place. In addition we’re doing an interview series with author Charles Eisenstein from which we’re making a new episode available every Sunday.
Campfire Stories is a platform for film that wants to find and affect the root cause of our global issues, instead of just pointing out the symptoms.
On Fear (11 mins)
This was the first film I made specifically for Campfire Stories – a platform for film that wants to dig at the roots of what we need to change, in order to reimagine a world of ecological balance and human sanity. So, where to begin? Which needle of which haystack to pull out first?
This film kind of made itself, through me. I didn’t really know where it was going until it had already arrived. There was a bigger intelligence at work than the one situated between my ears, and I think it did a pretty good job.
It decided to begin with possibly the biggest obstacle to change: Fear. And it decided I would tell not of other people’s fears, but of my own.
A bird falls dead at my feet. Death invades my thoughts. An image of me on my own death bed. What might I be thinking as I’m laying there? There you have it, the starting point of the story.
This is probably the slowest paced film I’ve ever made, and I know it can be hard sometimes to follow a slow story. But some slow stories have deeper echoes than their more efficiant counterparts. I think this is one of those.

A bird falls dead at my feet and sets my thoughts spinning. An image of me on my own death bed. What will I be thinking about as I’m laying there?
For 50 years he stood by the road waving to the traffic. But who was he? And why was he waving?
Passion. Obsession. And the best birdhouse in the world. My father may be over 80 but there’s no stopping him when he’s feeling inspired.
Nine questions with Charles Eisenstein.
Most of us seem to believe there actually is such a thing as time, such a thing as tomorrow. But, of course, when we get to tomorrow it’s turned into the now. A film about stepping into the present moment.
A conversation with musician Randy K on his boat in New York, about being knocked out, having less but giving more, and forgiving your enemy.
A trip into probability. And an opportunity to get to know the Swedes a bit better.
What does ancestry mean? For someone who’s adopted this is an acute question. A film about Emilio searching for his roots in Colombia.
