Charles Hale debuted his short film “Breathing of an Ancestor’s Space and Time” at last night’s IAW&A Salon at The Cell.

By understanding the events that surrounded one incident in his grandfather’s life through this video, Hale is able to get the “feel of things,” he is able to breathe from his grandfather’s space and time.

Author Peter Quinn called Hale’s video, “Concise and eloquent, narrative that borders on poetry, subtle yet emotional….The restraint in the piece is powerful…a willingness to let viewers and listeners have their own thought instead of telling them what to think.”
