When a New York City tabloid journalist’s story, about an elderly couple’s plan to control their fate by committing a double suicide, goes darkly awry, he is thrust on a journey of self-examination. Celebrity interviews, decadent parties, and quick-fix spiritualism don’t prepare him for a bizarre mystical ritual that sets the stage for a possible redemption at a perilous cost.

The Lucky Ones, premiered at theTribeca Film Festival in 2003.

Sarah Christman is nominated for her directing in Swarm Season, an Outstanding Achievement in a Debut Feature Film.  

In the shadow of Hawaii’s Mauna Kea volcano, a young girl, Manu, and her mother lovingly breed a colony of bees. Meanwhile, as Manu’s activist father protests the construction of a giant telescope on the mountain’s sacred ground, a group of scientists study the landscape in preparation for our inevitable relocation to Mars. Ambitiously linking the earthbound and the cosmic, the intimate and the expansive, director Sarah J. Christman tracks these existentially fraught narratives with an acute attention to time, scale, and historical consequence. As her monumental images gather force, Swarm Season takes on a potent allegorical dimension.
