The Horse Boy is a film about one family's struggle to find answers to their son's autism. Shot over the course of two years, this film follows the Isaacson family as they journey on horseback across Mongolia from healer to healer, and the amazing healings they found for their son, and for themselves. An inspiration to think outside the box, a travel adventure, an insight into shamanic traditions, the autistic mind, and man's relationship with animals; at its heart, The Horse Boy is a film about a family that went to the edge of the earth to find a way into their son's life.
Shot in the Bolivian rainforest with the native Moseten, My Father in The River Juxtaposes the story of an indigenous man who floats himself into the middle of a river to die of starvation and that of an American woman who has a dream of drifting on an ocean and in the arms of her mother. The film explores the metaphors of the river - of being trapped between two realities, two cultures, and in the water that flows between.

In the late 1930s, just after the German Anschluss of Austria, the official stance of the German government was to push for Jewish removal from Eastern Europe. During this time period, 20 to 30 thousand Jews left their home countries in search of refuge from a hostile government - a government that would enact brutalities, the outcome of which is the single most alarming piece of human history. During this period, scores of individuals and families fled Europe in boats destined for countries that they hoped would provide refuge from the increasing segregation, anger and violence that they faced in their homelands. The countries to which they fled, including the United States, in many documented cases, stopped boats at their harbors, denied access to these desperate voyagers, and sent hundreds to thousands back to Europe where close to two thirds became victims of the Holocaust. No country in the world would readily accept these escaping Jews. No country in the world had an open immigration policy that allowed clear passage. No country except for Bolivia.

Truepoint will meet up with Trackers International and renowned tracker and naturalist Jon Young. Together, we will create a documentary film weaving lessons from the endangered culture of the Bushmen with important research about how modern people learn to connect with nature and cultural mentoring. With over 30 years of combining native mentoring techniques with the tools of modern field ecology, Jon’s mission is to provide a bridge between two cultures from which to interpret the indigenous wisdom of the Bushmen. This wisdom is a source from which our own culture can revitalize both itself and its connection to the natural world.
