The Sharing Project is a 29 minute non-fiction film, philosophical journey, personal narrative, and nature film, all intertwined together to explore the meaning of sharing. It’s a topic that filmmaker Joel Tauber and his young son Zeke find incredibly complex and confusing. So, Tauber seeks clarity from experts in different fields; including philosopher Christian Miller, homeless center director Derwin L. Montgomery, and psychologist Jessica Sommerville. Joel and Zeke then turn to the site of the forgotten commune, Happyville (1905-1908); hoping that the landscape that had once inspired the Utopia Seekers, will also inspire them – reminding them that we’re all connected to the land, and therefore each other; and that sharing is an ideal worth striving for.
Official Selection of the 2019 Oaxaca FilmFest (Oaxaca, Mexico), the 2019 Vintage International Film Festival (Kolhapur, India), and the 2019 Kala Samruddhi International Film Festival (Mumbai, India).
