WE ARE NOT ALONE

We go behind the scenes with a group considered one of the most creatively prolific and longest-running spiritual collectives in America, The Unarius Academy of Science of El Cajon, California. 

We document the essential beliefs and practices of the group through candid interviews and intimate, behind-the-scenes moments, at once revealing the stranger-than-fiction origin story of Unarius and the phenomenal tales of its “cosmic visionary” co-founder, Ruth Norman, known to students as Archangel Uriel. This is a short documentary from director Jodi Wille, whose previous film The Source Family is currently being adapted into a scripted HBO series. 

NEW DEEP SOUTH 

NEW DEEP SOUTH is an ongoing short web series elevating the voices and stories of queer youth living in the American deep south. Co-creators: Lauren Cioffi and Rosie Haber.

The first episode, INSTABABY, tells the story of a young queer couple from Jackson, Mississippi, the last state to ban adoption by same-sex families. We follow the young couple as they try to start a family and pursue adoption of an unborn child through Instagram.

The second episode, KAYLA, is an intimate look at the life of a young queer person living in the heart of the Mississippi Delta as she transitions into her true self. 

Our next episode tells the story LGBTQ rainbow families in Jackson, Mississippi, a vibrant and close knit community charting their own paths.  

 Look for it in the upcoming months on www.thefront.com

WE ARE NOT ALONE

We go behind the scenes with a group considered to be one of the most outlandish, creatively prolific and longest-running UFO cults in America, The Unarius Academy of Science of El Cajon, California. 

We document the essential beliefs and practices of the group and, through candid interviews and intimate, behind-the-scenes moments, reveal the stranger-than-fiction origin story of Unarius  and the phenomenal tales of its wildly eccentric “cosmic visionary” co-founder, Ruth Norman, known to students  as Archangel Uriel. 

This is a short documentary poised to become a feature-length film by director Jodi Wille, whose previous film The Source Family is currently being adapted into a scripted HBO series.
