- Notes For A Polish Jew (2012, 8 min., 16mm, silent)
If his father had lived beyond the age of seventy-four, the following may have been the cinematic response to the city where in 1944, he last saw his family. Filmed in the mid-1980s, Lodz, Poland. Constructed in 2012, Florence, MA. USA

- From Prague to Poland (2010, 15 min., DVD, sound)
Sixty years after his family's departure from Poland, the filmmaker returns to the city where he was born.

- non-Aryan (2009, 12 min., silent, color, 16mm)
A recent article in the New York Times revealed that during the 1930's and 1940's administrators at Columbia University restricted the hiring of refugee, Jewish medical doctors by severely limiting the number of "non- Aryans" on their staff. Inspired by that revelation, the following is a cinematic tribute, a portait of another "non- Aryan" who was not a physician and arrived in the USA in 1955.

- Trepches (2009, 7 min., SILENT, Beta)
In the process of making "The March" (1999), my mother spoke about the wooden shoes she and other inmates wore on their forced march out of Auschwitz. She called them "trepches." Utilizing one of the optically printed segments from "The March," I've re-visited that filmmaking experience and our exchange.
