Videos from the Field
Here’s a view from a street in Hanoi as I walked toward the city center.
I took this video while riding a bicycle on Cat Ba Island, off the coast of Vietnam.
This was taken topside on a boat in Halong Bay, Vietnam.
Another view of the incredible Halong Bay–a place that challenges the imagination and reminds me of the innumerable mysteries and beauties this world offers.
On the road to Siem Reap, Cambodia, with a documentary filmmaker from Poland, an artist who was on the search for shamans.
On the boat headed to Battambang, we see floating villages and stilt houses and, in this video, giant shrimp nets.

The 47 Ronin, Sengakuji, Tokyo
As part of a US-Japan Friendship Commission Fellowship (an artistic partnership between the US and Japan, the NEA and the Bunkacho), I studied martial culture in Japan (among many other aspects of literature, history, culture, and more). Ilyse and I traveled to the Sengakuji Temple in Tokyo to pay our respects to the 47 Ronin.
