For over a decade filmmaker Glen Pearcy has been making short personal, often non-narrative films. The past two have documented his remission from cancer. He has used the iPhone to shoot intimate scenes not possible to record with conventional camera equipment.
Glen Pearcy was nominated for an Academy Award in 1975 for his third film, “Fighting For Our Lives”, a feature-length documentary film about the United Farm Worker’s grape strike. Since then he has written, produced and directed dozens of films, including documentaries for PBS and Turner Network Television; films and video programs for labor unions, consumer organizations, environmental groups, government agencies and political organizations; and television and radio spots for public interest groups, foundations, political candidates and commercial clients.
