The Visionists of Boston
When I made the "Visionists of Boston" documentary as my Master's thesis project, I planned to use the film to introduce people to this time period and facilitate more ambitious projects on similar subjects.  In particular I would love to make a narrative film, or a documentary with re-enactment scenes, about the Visionists, F. Holland Day, and Kahlil Gibran. 
I have continued to research the Visionists and have been posting new information to the Visionists website.  I would like to connect with others who are interested in this subject to insure I have will have support and an audience for future projects.  In March I will be screening the film and giving talks in classes at Suffolk U. and Harvard Extension.  If you have ideas for additional venues to screen the film and/or give talks, I would be happy to hear from you.  Likewise if you are interested in this subject or in helping out with a future project, feel free to e-mail me at josh@kastorf.net or follow the Visionists Facebook page.
