Conversational Documentary that hopes to plant the seeds of the soul back into everything – Sadly, we have lost our way along the yellow brick road and think of ourselves and each other as commodities; when in fact we do the best we can in each moment, but when we put our souls, hearts, minds and body into whatever we do, whether we know it or not, we do the impossible, we create the future – great music, art, poetry, dance, beauty, design etc not only cares for our individual and collective imagination but in moving us we become one with the artist and with each other – our souls, spirits what every you call it or don’t call it come together in that moment we are engaged in a Soul Exchange – food for thought

“What’s A Documentary?” for 2 Seven Year Old’s by geo geller
in 2002/3 i was shooting a documentary called “Self-Portrait of YOU-manity” as if i was hired to do a documentary on YOU-manity for people from another planet – so i went around asking people to describe to somebody from another planet what it was like to be human, man, woman, child, mother, father, sister, brother, friends, wife, beauty, sex, love etc and one spring day i was filming these two seven year old’s who were sisters from other mothers and were babies in the womb together about what it was like to be this and that and to be friends and at the end i asked as i usually do “if i can use this in a documentary” and the kids in unison said “What’s A Documentary?” and so for years on and off especially at George Stoney birthday party events and doc film festivals i stalked doc filmmakers and asked “What’s A Documentary? – for two seven year old’s” – this below came from a PBS, POV, ITVS sponsored event 2/22/2015 – i need to put up the credits too
