Reconnecting Roots (2020)

Role: Producer

We are all getting swept up in a tidal wave of change called ‘progress.’ But somewhere among all this upgrading, updating, and modernizing, it might be a good idea to take a deep breath and check in on what’s being lost.
Life is moving forward so fast, both technologically and culturally, how do we stay attached to the roots that made us? That’s what Reconnecting Roots is all about—taking a moment to reflect on the heritage that’s still all around us. And use it to spark conversation across generations.
SO WE ARE COMMITTED TO SHARING
THE STORIES THAT CAN ILLUMINATE THE PAST AND GUIDE US FORWARD.
