DOCUMENTARY "CITY OF HOPE: A CHILDREN'S STORY"

City of Hope: A Children’s Story documents the stark life of Brazil’s favela (slums) children, and is a feature-length documentary capturing the lives of displaced children caught in a seemingly unending web of drugs, violence, prostitution, sexual slavery and deliberate acts to exterminate these unwanted children. In a country with an enlightened government, it is also a film of hope and salvation as both government and Brazil’s affluent private sector work to save these children.

I met my partner John Scheifele in 1998 and then two months later left for Brazil for 6 weeks. Upon my return we decided that we would give it a go. It has now been twelve years and we're still together. John spent 30 years in high tech, so when the bottom fell out I convinced him to join my company Capriole Productions Inc as Executive Producer. John having no knowledge of film has learned quickly and is now an incredible asset to the company and the production in Brazil we are undertaking. I am very grateful to have John work with me.

  1. I guess once a good business man, always a good business man.

    It's refreshing to see a production company that contributes positivity to the world. People need to be more aware of the suffering in Brazil.

I grew up in Princeton, NJ. Spent my summers on Fire Island and Deer Isle Maine, riding my horse , traveling and exploring Princeton University. I fell in love with film at any early age and decided to go to film school. I've been able to combine my love of horses with the love of filmmaking. I also love to read what ever I can get my hands on. I found that I've excelled at still photography and love to watch people.
