Recordar Productions is dedicated to creating media that speaks to the heart. An independent production company based in the Bay Area, we turn the lens of the camera to reflect the ancient cultural wisdoms still living today. We turn the lens to the waters, the winds and the roots to reflect the wisdom of the earth. We turn the lens to the wondrous ways in which people and nature meet: the colorful celebrations, the voices that harmonize with the birds, communities working together to restore balance. We turn our lens to those standing up with dignity and strength to the forces threatening the continuation of diverse life on earth. Through sound and image, we strive to reflect the memory of a possible future and awaken the remembering of relatedness in the heart.
