"Everything changes when a little girl enters Joseph's life through mysterious circumstances."
From the heart of the heart of the country come The Amerikans. These relationship-based documentaries are created in close cooperation with their participating subjects. Each episode allows its star to define and share his or her imagination, in film styles customized to the story at hand. The magic of this collaborative approach lies in revealing the extraordinary richness of the inner lives of ordinary people. The Amerikans is an on-going project that celebrates the creative and complex community that we already live in. Music for video by Charles Glanders.

Made as part of Prague Film School one year program." - Raam Reddy, 2013
