I have had the pleasure of working with Heart house through my thesis documentary film "Joy's Doors". "Joy's DOors" is currently still in production and will be released in the spring of 2021. Heart house is an after school program for refugee children and teens where they can bring chaos to calm through social emotional learning. Heart house provides resources to students in vickery meadow, dallas. These children and young adults are faced with the struggles of poverty and acclimating to a new country on a daily basis, and heart house gives them a safe haven to be themselves.
For their 20th anniversary I had the pleasure of taking footage from the documentary and cutting a promo video for their celebration which is shown below.
Also for their 20th anniversary I filmed an interview with NBA hall of famer Dirk Nowitzki and Espn journalist Ian fitzsimmons to speak about the importance of heart house and organizations similar to them.
Below you will see the documentary followed by the 20th anniversary promo followed by the dirk nowitzki interview.
