Artist Donna Tauscher muses on how she sees the passing of time.
Donna Tauscher created this multimedia collection of visual art when she went back to live in Maxwell, California, a small rural town in the Sacramento Valley where she grew up. She went there to take care of her father who was suffering from Parkinson’s disease in a local nursing home. Uncertain Horizon was exhibited at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts in 2006. Donna asked if I would document the exhibit for her. I also took my camera out to Maxwell a couple of years later and shot footage of the vast acres of farmland that surrounded Donna and became a focal point for much of her art. The spoken word piece that you hear was a part of the exhibit.

The Jerry Sandusky case has created a ripple effect in the amount of child sexual abuse cases being reporting, some agencies citing as much as a 50% increase.
In this 25 minute documentary, Amy Hestir and Mark McKenna, two survivors of sexual abuse perpetrated by their childhood coaches, come forward to talk about their own personal journey from being a victim, paralyzed by the cruel effects of sexual abuse, to becoming a survivor, living fully by letting go of the shame.
