There is nothing more fascinating to me then the dialectic between the material world and human consciousness. I believe that Film, (and documentaries in particular) occupy a powerful position in this relationship. Our experience in the material world gives rise to our consciousness, and then through our agency we can change the material world. This makes film both a reflection and a material force at the same time. Documentary editing is situated in the best place to both witness and take part in this dialectic. This is what draws me to this medium.
