Filmography   

filmmaker's note
In Brazil, there is a great deal of kindness, compassion, tolerance and joie de vivre. It is ingrained within the collective consciousness of its citizens. These traits and the contrasts within the social hierarchy of its society are what initially struck me when I visited the country for the first time. It is this tolerance and contrast that contribute to Brazilís role as a guiding force globally and a great power politically. It later occurred to me that the manner in which automobiles and trucks share the roads with cart haulers intrigued me quite considerably. That visual remark was the planting of a seed that is now HAULING, my documentary feature directorial debut. I was curious to know more about the haulers and how they contributed to the recycling industry in Brazil. I had a lot of questions that I wanted answered: Where did they go, how far did they travel every day, how much money did they earn, where did they live, how did they support their families, who were their friends and how did they begin this type of work and lifestyle. As a resident of Sao Paulo for the past 9 years I had the opportunity to develop this story over time and with careful consideration. When the production financing was in place and it came time to document these incredible stories for the world to see I was overwhelmed with joy and very anxious to get started. Duringproduction, I discovered the S„o Paulo I had never known. We followed the haulers into areas of the city I never knew existed and we met incredibly interesting people whom we were fortunate enough to capture on camera. As Brazil moves closer towards legislation that mandates the rules and laws in regards to recycling, it will be interesting to see how this affects the haulers and their ability to keep hauling on the streets of this great country.
