War Game

(Director of Photography)

USA 2024 | Documentary Feauture | Directed by Tony Gerber, Jesse Moss |  World Premiere Sundance Film Festival 2024 | 

What if Jan. 6 happened again, only much, much worse? In a new Sundance documentary, 'War Game,’ politicians and military leaders simulate another contested election, in January 2025, and take it to the extreme. In “War Game,” a new documentary from Jesse Moss and Tony Gerber, these men are members of the Order of Columbus, an extremely religious, paramilitary organization that refuses to accept the results of a contested presidential election. This is not real. It’s part of an unscripted, real-time “war game” simulation being conducted by a nonpartisan veterans group called Vet Voice Foundation — inspired by a Washington Post op-ed from three retired generals who warned that the government needed to start preparing for another, even more deadly insurrection in the wake of the 2024 election.

USA 2024 | Documentary Feauture | Directed by Amanda McBain, Jesse Moss |  World Premiere Sundance Film Festival 2024 | Apple +

What would American democracy look like in the hands of teenage girls? A political coming-of-age story and a stirring reimagination of what it means to govern, “Girls State" follows young female leaders — from wildly different backgrounds across Missouri — as they navigate an immersive experiment to build a government from the ground up. As questions of race and gender equality in a representational democracy reach a fever pitch, these young women confront the complicated paths women must navigate to build political power. Following a distinctly female perspective and filled with teenage insecurity, biting humor and a yearning for true friendship, the young leaders of “Girls State” win hearts and minds—not just elections.

American Symphony

(Co-Director of Photography)

USA 2023 | Documentary Feauture | Directed by Matthew Heinemann |  World Premiere Telluiride Film Festival 2023

American Symphony,” Matthew Heineman’s documentary portrait of the artist as a man pulled from all sides, begins in early 2022, just as Batiste starts crafting the eponymous original composition and Jaouad prepares to reenter the hospital. Heineman follows the couple during the tumultuous year as Batiste juggles various professional demands while supporting his partner during her cancer treatments. Batiste and Jaouad’s simpatico creative attitudes keeps their shared spirit afloat during this period; Heineman deliberately contrasts Jaouad’s foray into painting while in the hospital — a necessary creative shift given the radiation’s effect on her vision rendered her incapable of reading or writing — with Batiste’s musical labor. “American Symphony” culminates with Batiste’s premiere of the symphony at Carnegie Hall, but it really captures a chaotic year in the life of a musician.

The Family Business: Trump and Taxes

(Co- Director of Photography)

(World Premiere Showtime 2018 | Documentary Short |


USA 2018 | Documentary | Directed by Jenny Carchman | Showtime

Directed by Jenny Carchman and produced by Oscar nominees Liz Garbus and Justin Wilkes, the doc focuses on the efforts of Susanne Craig, David Barstow and Russell Buettner, the chief reporters on the team. They spent more than a year working on the story that was published on Oct. 2 and ran a mammoth 13,000 words. Sparked by the leak of several pages of Trump's 2005 tax return as reported by Rachel Maddow, the story belied Trump's decades-long assertions of being a "self-made" billionaire who got his start thanks to a mere $1 million loan from his father which he had to repay with interest. Among the revelations was that little Donald was making over $200,000 a year at the age of three, no chump change for a tyke. Ironically, much of the reporting was based on obligatory financial disclosure forms filed by Trump's sister Maryanne, a federal judge.

Winner Special Jury Prize the Barcelona Film Festival 


Nadia Comaneci was the most famous gymnast of her era. She is known by the world as a star, a sensation, a phenomenon: an upstart, with the body of a child, winning a perfect ten at the Montreal Olympics at the age of 14. Representing her country, Romania, she was a little soldier who rarely smiled, revealing nothing on her face but a total focus on her performance. 


She vanquished the favorites and conquered the world with her historic perfect ten scores at the 1976 games. It was a moment that grabbed audiences’ attention around the world, and no one who saw it ever forgot. She became the idol of young girls everywhere, a child star in the great tradition of Hollywood: a perfect life.


But how perfect was it? This film will unearth the truth behind the legend.

This is Personal

(Director of Photography)

(World Premiere Sundance Film Festival 2019 | Documentary Feature )

USA 2019 | Documentary | 90min | Directed by Amy Berg 

The Women’s March mobilized millions of women to protest after the inauguration of President Trump. But working across ideologies to combat injustice has its challenges. Academy Award–nominated director Amy Berg returns to the Sundance Film Festival with an insider look at the struggle for intersectional activism among the Women’s March leadership.

Berg captures the collaborative organizing process and hopeful energy of the first marches in 2017 and spends time behind the scenes highlighting the sustained work that happens after the crowds subside. For Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory and community-organizing leader Erika Andiola, the march is only the tip of the iceberg of their broader activism—Andiola championing immigration rights and Mallory protesting gun violence. When Mallory comes under fire for her affiliations with Minister Louis Farrakhan, a powerful conversation between Mallory and Rabbi Rachel Timoner opens up a dialogue about intersectional leadership.

In light of the recent controversy around four of the Women’s March leaders, including Mallory, Berg’s film offers a timely springboard for a discussion on issues that have plagued the women’s movement for a century.

Hundreds of Chinese companies entered the US stock market through reverse takeovers with American companies. They boasted tremendous growth, had little oversight, and created a stock-market feeding frenzy. It seemed too good to be true and it was.

Didion guides us through the sleek literati scene of New York in the 1950s and early ’60s, when she wrote for Vogue; her return to her home state of California for two turbulent decades; the writing of her seminal books, including Slouching Towards Bethlehem and The White Album.

Water & Power: A California Heist

(Co- Director of Photography)

(World Premiere Sundance Film Festival 2017 | Documentary Feature)

USA 2016 | Documentary | 90min | Director Marina Zenovich


This thrilling investigation uncovers the high-level corruption behind California’s long-standing water crisis. Sweeping cinematography of California’s harsh, dry landscape asks us to visualize a fight for water in what feels like a modern day Chinatown. Filmmaker Marina Zenovich peels back the layers of California’s convoluted water structure—wealthy water barons show their guilty hand in exploiting the state’s resource, while small farmers and neighboring towns endure debilitating drought. We see luxury crops, like almonds, on the rise and groundwater contamination increasing tenfold, pitting backroom business dealings against human and environmental costs.

Zenovich returns to the Sundance Film Festival with this cleverly orchestrated exposé. She takes us into the stark realities of small California towns, where paying for showers is the norm—bringing light to the growing divide between water haves and have nots.

This natural resource is only growing more valuable as the new war for water is already upon us. This daring and extremely timely documentary asks us to question who has control of our access to our water.

Rising Voices / Hótȟaŋiŋpi

(Additional Cinematography)

USA 2015 | Documentary | 90 min | Director Lawrence R. Hott

Five years in the making, Florentine Films in association with The Language Conservancy, tells the story of a powerful threat to a Native culture. This threat is an insidious, impersonal villain – one that comes through TV sets and social media sites, through Tweets and comic strips and the daily news. The menace is the English language, and the victim seemingly marked for extinction is the Lakota language itself – the language of the Lakota nation, once usually called the Sioux. For the Lakota people, it’s a local problem, but it’s just one instance of a massive global one – a worldwide epidemic of language extinction. 


Rising Voices is about the imminent peril to the Lakota language. The film braids together the struggles of Lakota to learn their tribal language today, the historical attempt by the United States to annihilate the language, the rise of immersion language schools and the participation of outsiders in the rescue of the Lakota language. History is interwoven with present-day scenes and with short films about the culture, created by Lakota filmmakers and artists especially for Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi. 

The Amish: Shunned

(Additional Cinematography)

USA 2015 | Documentary  | 120 min | Callie T. Wiser

Revealing the pain of those who leave and the suffering of those left behind, The Amish: Shunned is the story of people confronted with difficult choices. Whether out in the world for weeks or decades, the former Amish people featured in the film struggle to create a new sense of community. Interwoven with their stories are the voices of staunchly loyal Amish men and women who explain the importance of obedience, the strong ties and traditions that bind them together, and the heartbreak they feel when a loved one falls away. Through its sympathetic portrayal of both sides, the film explores what is gained and what is lost when community and tradition are exchanged for individuality and freedom.
