Join Santa Cruz Collects Artist, David Hoffman, as he shares his film Everything Which Is…Yes, a 60-minute documentary that won the Audience Award for Locally-Produced Work at the 2011 Santa Cruz Film Festival. John Barret’s moving film chronicles local documentarian David Hoffman’s recovery from a devastating fire that destroyed his home, his personal film archive and the treasured collections he had built over 45 years.
In 2008, documentary filmmaker David Hoffman lost nearly everything he owned—-including his huge film and art archive—-in the fire that destroyed his home. Determined to “make something good out of something bad”, Hoffman began to videotape himself as a record for his young sons of what the loss meant to him. He takes us on a tour of his burned property and the result is an inspiring glimpse into his life and times, his distinct way of seeing the world and his remarkable career as a pioneer of documentary filmmaking, featuring stunning clips from many of his unique and important films. Most importantly, Hoffman’s stated philosophy leaves us with an uplifting sense of perseverance and a strong testament to the notion that we all have the capacity to make something good out of something bad.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with David Hoffman. Take a peek at the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4Lk4Cit8MI
