Saatchi & Saatchi and The Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada asked me to make a short documentary film to be included in their innovative program: @Random.

A metaphorical experiment in documentary, bizarrely textured morphing spheres sync to overlapping voices in counterpoint presented in the environment of a frozen Great Lake.

The inspiration and subjects: I always wanted to riff on something akin to Glenn Gould's radio documentary "The Idea of North" - thinking this might prove a great platform to introduce Kirstin Hinds, a single Mom and her 5 beautiful, unique and complex children all of whom are living with Tourette Syndrome in rural Ontario.
