About Us

Nick and Mary have been self producing and four-walling underground films for 22 years. Our award-winning work has been praised by the likes of Gus Van Sant, James Benning and film scholar Ray Carney. We are known for our fine-focused attention to detail and for narratives that are communicated visually rather than through expository dialogue. We tell stories of love lost, the inherent fallibility of verbal human communication, and the selfless fighters who steadfastly work to create a better world despite the unrelenting attempts of control by the self-righteous who only live for themselves. Our distinctive visual style is integral to our story telling and is greatly influenced by socially conscious filmmakers such as Straub-Huillet, Chantal Akerman, Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Yasujiro Ozu.
