Synopsis: Until They’re Gone is a documentary about landmines, the people who remove them, and hope. Specifically, it’s about Bill and Jill Morse of the Landmine Relief Fund that raises funds for Aki Ra. Forced to plant landmines as a Khmer Rouge child soldier, Aki Ra began demining with just a stick and a pair of pliers in 1994. Filmmakers will be available for Q & A after the screening.


DIRECTOR: Christopher holds an MFA in Cinematography from the American Film Institute and has shot films, documentaries, and TV shows on five continents. His credits include 400+ episodes of Big Brother on CBS and Naked and Afraid XL on Discovery. The L.A. Times called his last documentary, The Typewriter (In The 21st century) “a fun compact love letter of a documentary.” The Washington Post called it “a valuable and persuasive film.”
