a film by Singeli Agnew and Joshua Fisher | Contact us

Singeli worked as a photographer and writer for seven years in New Mexico before becoming a filmmaker. Once a trek leader in Nepal, she recently returned to Asia to produce a short profile of 92-year-old Indian activist Captain Lakshmi and do camera work for A Girl’s Life, a FRONTLINE/World production. She grew up on a sheep ranch in Montana, and now lives in the Bay Area with her husband and daughter. This summer she’s out on the US highways again to talk to people about religion.

Joshua Fisher studied economics, started a record label, and taught at a university in Kazakhstan before becoming a filmmaker. His first film, Jubilee, told the story of a vanishing small town in South Dakota, and he recently completed a FRONTLINE/World Fellows project about underground filmmakers in China. He currently lives in Oakland, California and is an assistant editor on a feature-length documentary about the science of happiness.

Singeli and Josh met while working toward their master’s degrees in documentary filmmaking at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, where they studied with filmmakers Jon Else and Deborah Hoffman, and writer Michael Pollan. They both sustained multiple bee stings during the production of this film.

Composer Michael Shorr runs Chocolate Strawberry Studios, the commercial music house equivalent of a close-knit, small town. He performed with Don Richmond and Chipper Thompson in Taos, New Mexico for Pollen Nation.

San Francisco animator Cora Foxx has a knack for movement and a penchant for whimsy.
