HARBERS STUDIOS 2016 YEAR IN REVIEW

At the beginning of each new year, we take time to reflect on what we accomplished in the previous year. If we spent 2015 in production mode – making more than twenty short films that gave visual voice to an extraordinary array of ideas, organizations and artists – we spent 2016 in distribution mode, publishing those films on websites like The New York Times and The Atlantic, and following them around the country to film festivals, events and fundraisers. Click here for a short retrospective of what went where when.

In their online artwork, Network Effect, Jonathan Harris and Greg Hochmuth tackle our complicated relationship with the Internet (are we evolving into a single organism, with the world wide web as our connective tissue?) by presenting us with a time-constrained, verb-driven exploration of life in a data-intensive, YouTube-centric world. In this short film, they attempt to describe what can really only be experienced: www.networkeffect.io

NOW PLAYING ON NEW YORK TIMES OP-DOCS!

Harbers Studios is thrilled to announce that Taller Than the Trees, a new documentary short by Academy Award® winner Megan Mylan, is now playing on New York Times Op-Docs.

Taller Than the Trees is the story of Masami Hayata, a Tokyo man delicately balancing his roles as advertising executive, father, husband, devoted son and caregiver to his ailing mother.

Inspired by Billy Collins‘ reading of his poem The Lanyard at the 2014 Nantucket Project, this beautiful film about the debt we owe our parents is an intimate portrait of the growing demographic pressures of Japan’s hyper-aging population and how Japanese families, steeped in the tradition of oya-koko, or filial piety, are caring for their aging parents in the 21st century.

This film is part of the Harbers Storytelling Project.
