This is where I now live and work as a carpenter and videographer. No roads to the outside world, access by boat up Lake Chelan. No television, phones, or radio. Isolated in some respects, but so fully engaged in many, many more. This short film captures a few days of village life in this mountain retreat center in the Washington Cascades. The film touches upon three aspects of Holden: Living, Community, and Renewal–calling upon vivid images of laughter, dance, food, work, play, and prayer to present Holden in the light of its mountain splendor.

This marks the completion of my first film project, from acquisition to final edit, in fifteen years.
