We are not always on the radar when living and working north of sixty. When people have a chance to see what we’re doing, I’m eager to share their impressions. Here’s some feedback from various projects.



Three Rivers: Wild Waters, Sacred Places (documentary)


Three Rivers is a lovely, important film about the sacred, creativity, and nature.  I often show it in my master classes on "Cinema and the Sacred", around the world.

Cascade de Lumière (experimental film)


"For me, this film was a wonderful poetic expression of what all humanity wants, a connection with the Universal Mind if you will. Surely we are all divine, all natural heroes, once we dispense with our dualistic thoughts of right and wrong, good and bad, and one of the easiest ways to access this understanding is through communing with nature, beyond thought. Of course, we don't have to go on a river trip in the Yukon to experience our connection and interdependence with the universe, but observing nature is a ready portal to this understanding. And what a majestic space to gain perspective! For what is "up" and what is "down" in your office simply doesn't exist out in space. The filming was beautiful, the music uplifting, the people heroic. "

Cascade of Light grew from the soul of the North. It is a

rare and precious thing. Marten’s work has earned my respect.
