Her first independent documentary, "On This Island," made on a shoestring, about a rift over a musical on a small island in Maine was praised by Maine PBS as "one of the best descriptions of life in rural areas in a long,
long time." The film will show at the Santa Fe Film Festival on Dec. 7th and 8th 2001.

 

A traveler at heart, she once crossed Africa from top to bottom overland solo, and has been to more
