Notable Mark Simos amazing score and does Mix to Pic for Permaculture: The Growing Edge
Permaculture: The Growing Edge is an antidote to environmental despair, a hopeful and practical look at a path to a viable, flourishing future. The film introduces us to inspiring examples of projects, and includes a visit to David Holmgren’s own homestead, tracking deer with naturalist Jon Young, sheet mulching an inner-city garden with Hunters Point Family, transforming an intersection into a gathering place with City Repair and joining mycologist Paul Stamets as he cleans up an oil spill with mushrooms. We interview some of the key figures in the Permaculture movement, including David Holmgren, Penny Livingston-Stark, James Stark, Paul Stamets, Mark Lakeman, Dr. Elaine Ingham, Maddy Harland, and others.
Permaculture is a sustainable system of earth care that offers solutions to many of our grave environmental problems and a hopeful, proactive vision of change. The Permaculture movement, started by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the nineteen seventies, is now a worldwide network of skilled ecological designers, teachers, food growers, natural builders, environmental activists and visionaries. “Permaculture is the key to a post-carbon future,” says Maddy Harlan, editor of Permaculture Magazine.

Nora Chipaumire: A Physical Biography
A filmic journey into the life of Nora Chipaumire, a choreographer and a performance artist from Zimbabwe. Shot in Africa, the film creates a portrait of an artist using the language of her own art form.
"Nora Chipaumire is a remarkable solo artist who investigates the collaborative process within cultural, political, economic, and technological identities of African contemporary life. Her work is transnational, unafraid, and eager to burn cultural, creative, and geographic boundaries whilst illuminating what it means to be Zimbabwean/woman/black/human in an increasingly borderless world. She views the theatrical stage as a "harrowing place of purging and paradoxically a place for reclaiming strength" (The Village Voice).
Notable had the pleasure of doing Nora's interviews for the narrative parts of the film.
