The MacArthur Foundation backed the Digital and Media Learning Hub (University of California Humanities Research Institute) to re-imagine the experience of education and schooling. In the a period of 5 years they spent close to $500 million in research. Connected Learning was the outcome.

They commissioned me for a series of short films to bring the sense of the courageous & transformational findings to film.

MENTOR is one of the films in the series.

The Full Series will be uploaded to the Library soon.

The true influence of mentorship is so very human, and its ability to validate another is beyond powerful. Teacher or not, this film might leave you wondering if you have a part to play in the life and education of another.

SAD NOTE : Unexpectedly Brother Mike passed away in his sleep in December 2014. Aged just 38.
