The Life She Deserves: Medical Marijuana in the United States

“The Life She Deserves: Medical Marijuana in the United States” is a new documentary short film from Brookings that provides an intimate portrait of Jennifer Collins and her family’s struggle to find a treatment to control her debilitating epilepsy. Because her legal pharmaceutical treatments cause severe side effects, Jennifer and her mother move across the country to Colorado to access medical marijuana. The therapy provides Jennifer and her family with the relief they once feared was unobtainable, but they are now faced with the stigma and legal uncertainty that surround the use of medical cannabis.

I was the Director of Photography & colorist on this project.

The Professor and the President: Moynihan in the Nixon White House

What happens when a conservative president makes a liberal professor from the Ivy League his top urban affairs adviser? The president is Richard Nixon, the professor is Harvard’s Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Of all the odd couples in American public life, they are probably the oddest. Who won? How? Why? Now nearly a half-century later, Stephen Hess, who was Nixon’s biographer and Moynihan’s deputy, recounts this fascinating story as if from his office in the West Wing.

The story of Lawfare

Lawfare began in 2010 as a small blog run by three friends: Robert Chesney, Jack Goldsmith, and Benjamin Wittes. The site’s inaugural post set out the three scholars’ vision for what was then a labor of love: “We mean to devote this blog to that nebulous zone in which actions taken or contemplated to protect the nation interact with the nation’s laws and legal institutions.” Since then, Lawfare has been devoted to that space and has built a reputation for accurate, accessible, technically sophisticated, and nonpartisan insight that is timely and useful to those who make and implement policy. In recent years, Lawfare has expanded its reach dramatically, building upon that existing foundation to become one of the primary engines driving serious public discussion of the issues central to the safeguarding of democracy. This video tells the story of Lawfare’s origins and its meteoric growth.
