These Are Mysteries
Filmed on location in Lorain, Ohio, These Are Mysteries about Parnell Necklace, a Native American drum-maker and storyteller, who demonstrates the traditional ways of building and playing a hand drum. While working, he recounts his experiences with UFOs, shape shifters, and Bigfoot. The film is both a window into Parnell's world and a lesson in his craft.

From the heart of the heart of the country come The Amerikans. These relationship-based documentaries are created in close cooperation with their participating subjects. Each episode allows its star to define and share his or her imagination, in film styles customized to the story at hand. The magic of this collaborative approach lies in revealing the extraordinary richness of the inner lives of ordinary people. The Amerikans is an on-going project that celebrates the creative and complex communities in which we already live, even if unknowingly.
