Formerly a producer for PBS’ Independent Lens, Jonathan produces documentary content with the international production house What Took You So Long? He has filmed in over 30 countries for organizations such as the United Nations, Google, VICE, Virgin Records, and PBS. Breathe is his first independent short film.
Both Rebecca and I are eager and available to speak on the topic of addiction and therapy, both at film festivals or online. We have spoken in public forums in the past and are creating educational materials to pair with the film so that young people can be led through workshops on self care and identifying addiction.
I’ve created similar educational materials through my work as a Producer at PBS’ Independent Lens. I hope that young people can come away from the short film feeling inspired to search for their passion and spark a conversation on the healing effects of natural therapies.
