The Long Island Film Festival is currently taking submissions for 2017



I hadn’t seen my sister in years. She had joined a cult, changed her name, become a disciple of a Zen master called “Umi” and cut off most contact with our family. Why anyone, let alone my sister, would make this radical choice was a mystery – and she offered few clues. I realized if I wanted to reconnect with her I’d have to cast off my prejudices and enter her world. Over a two year perios I followed aneclectic group of seekers who found that the road to enlightenment is rocky. While “Stillpoint” isn’t about my sister – it’s because of her. Documentary¬† 77 minutes¬† US
