Jackson, Wyoming, my home since 2002, is a wonderful place to live and play, but also a rich environment for me as a storyteller. There are plenty of Give’rs – plenty of subjects for JenTen documentary films.
Currently, I’m working on Hearts of Glass, a film that tells story of the critical first year of operation of Vertical Harvest (VH), a highly innovative, but risky, experiment in growing crops and providing meaningful employment to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. VH is high-tech vertical greenhouse located on 1/10 of an acre at an elevation of 6,237 feet in the center of Jackson.
The team that brought the greenhouse to fruition, the management and employees who are there every day – they are all people who Give’r. They are pioneering creative solutions to sustainable food production and inclusion. My production team and I will be giving our all to share their story and reach hearts and minds beyond the Tetons.
Whether using the Stagecoach Bar as a lens through which to view seventy years of cultural change in Jackson Hole or profiling the life and loves of a ninety-year old conservation icon, community is at the heart of all my films. Give’r is all about community. It feels like a perfect fit…like a pair of Classic Give’r Gloves!
