Ela Thier films

I create films that help people laugh and cry, that remind us that we care about each other, and that we long to show our caring.

Our survival as a species, at this point in history, is dependent on us building societies organized around human needs rather than greed. My goal is to do my part, as an artist, to get us there.

In doing my work, I accidentally found myself building an entire movement of artists who share this goal. This has been an easy task, since everyone, it seems, prefers to live in a world in which every human is safe and flourishing.
