Director, Producer, Creator of the Belonging Series

“Belonging in the USA:  Stories from our Neighbors” is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization.  Contributions for the charitable purposes of “Belonging in the USA:  Stories from our Neighbors” must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. 


Through the support of over 80 individuals like you, we finished the multi-award-winning film "Belonging in the USA: The Story of Michael D. McCarty" in 2018 and have been screening it around the country and online during the covid pandemic ever since. 


Our vision is to create a series of films with a budget of about $50,000 per film + cost of our outreach and free nationwide community screenings.  To date we have raised over $125,000 towards our goal of $250,000 for the first three films of the series.  We are currently in post-production on the 2nd Belonging in the USA film "The Story of Alicia & Antonio."  The third film "The Story of the Tsuchiya Family" is currently in production.  


We are applying for grants and continue to solicit individual tax-deductible donations through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas.  We also plan to launch a Kickstarter campaign in 2021 to offset costs and build audience.


If you are interested in becoming an Associate Producer or Executive Producer please contact us to find out how.  


Any amount, even $26, makes a difference and helps contribute to getting this work out into the world.
