Dragon Tears is a documentary film I am directing on the topic of China's environmental law- and policy- in the context of Climate Change currently in production. Based on interviews with leading experts, this film investigates the complex relationship between China and the rest of the world, with a focus on freshwater security, global sustainable economic development, international trade and climate change adaptation measures. Here is the first edited preview draft. I would love your feedback!
The Tibetan Bowls recording was interpreted by Lynda Arnold and Artemis Robison, and recorded at Ghost Cat Studios with sound engineers Jay Marston and Ryan Kleeman in San Francisco. Artemis Robison is the music director for Dragon Tears. She is a ridiculously talented musician, music composer and singer. Reed Rickert filmed my interview with world renowned scholar Noam Chomsky at MIT in Cambridge in May 2013. With the assistance of Frédérica Marta Carola Bruni, Charles n Richard filmed my interview with eco-feminist Vandana Shiva in Paris during COP 21. The Chinese-English translation was done by Megan Millward. Other artists, volunteers and scholars are involved in this project, including Kristin Johansen, Munko and Samorost, and Tim Donlou.

My artwork, experimental films, and scholarly reflections emerge from a deep curiosity and fascination with the boundlessness of the human spirit, the limitlessness of the cosmic universe, the mythological, the spiritual, the exploration of my EARTH LIGHT body which emanates from infinity (this is the realm of the MYSTERY, the wildest imagination), as well as a real concern for our beautiful planet MOTHER EARTH. The premise of this heuristic body of work is that the current planetary crises are crises in human consciousness, crises of the humanity group soul/spirit. As an environmental advocate and consciousness activist, my work intends to intentionally participate in redesigning culture, the intentional participation in designing a post-growth ecological culture (this is the creative process of redesigning culture) for an ecologically sustainable and spiritually thriving planetary future. My intention is to shed light on the sacred multidimensional ways in which we potentiate the power of our consciousness. This body of work is a prayer to humanity to align our mind and hearts, to raise the power of our hearts, to develop methods and technologies to go inward towards the complexities and awareness of our individual connection to Source We are the Rainbow Warriors. If the world is indeed participatory, we manifest/dream this world into existence. Indeed, dear friends... a colourful future is ours to create!
