Borders, a film about Todos Santos

[photo from borders]Filmmaker Chishan Lin has released a three-minute film called Borders about her travels in Guatemala. She describes her thoughts about living with a family in Todos Santos.

It reminded me when director Peter Sellar asked us, "What are you going to do with your privilege?" We continue to answer this question each in our own way.

Congratulations Chishan on this personal, reflective work about poverty and migration. I especially like how the landscapes of Todos Santos and the gardens of Los Angeles are paired.

Thanks also for choosing to tell this story with my music. I was honored to hear the duet from YIJU: Songs of Dislocation as the soundtrack. Through the internet, these narratives may make a difference by providing heartfelt viewpoints about the world we share.
