I am a documentary film director. Subjects of my films have included love, sex, 9/11, indigenous fisheries, hurricanes, refugees, HIV/AIDS orphans, and visualization of God. I am best known for the Real People, Real Life, Real Sex series of documentaries that simultaneously explore the vital role of sexual pleasure in committed relationships and the problematic place of explicit sexuality in cinema. This is my "Safe" blog.

“I want to see wave riding documented the way I see it in my head and the way I feel it in the sea.” — Irish Surf Photographer Allan Wilson

I’ve mentioned before how much my approach to making films about sex and making a living making films about sex is influenced by Bruce Brown’s 1964 film “The Endless Summer”. Watching Wilson’s short film about making a life making surf films, I can’t help think that for all the images of sex that seem to swirl around us, there is still a world of profound beauty that remains to be seen.

The question is, who will have to courage and dedication to bring those images to life?
