Current Projects and Research Interests
Rebecca's most recent film, come wishes be horses, weaves audio from a birdwatching walk with images inspired by the desire, mystery and pleasure of the activity. She is developing a new project that reflects on the symbolic and natural landscapes of Central Pennsylvania, seeking connections between the spirituality of organized religion and private acts of secular devotion.
