We are fortunate to have REFLECTING RESILIENCE as our Opening Film by Director Lindy Boustedt. SHARE is a program where screenwriting and filmmaking are used as a redemptive tool for incarcerated communities around the State of Washington that might not otherwise have a voice. In this short film, we interviewed SHARE students at Echo Glen High School, a juvenile detention facility in King County, WA, what resilience looks like and means to them.


Our Feature Film will be TUPUNGATO – Empathy in Death. It follows Rafael Pease’s six-year obsession of visibilizing a threatened area. A winter expedition to the highest peak, Volcan Tupungato 21,555ft, evolves into a fight for conservation.

The team (Rafeal Pease, Jeremy Anderson, Erich Roepke and Joonas Mattila) approaches the mining company “DANGER” signs enroute to Tupungato, a 21,550 ft. Strato Volcano in the Central Andes, Chile

Jn hopes of creating a national park, containing 350,000acres in one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, as well as a significant source of water for 40% of Chile’s population. Interviews with renowned scientists and activists unveil a web of corruption in the government and multinational corporations, stemming from imperial religion and a dictator’s constitution. This explosive film is set against the backdrop of historic protests, as the people of Chile rise up for social and environmental rights.
