Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory

TRT : 29 minutes 1997
Co-produced and Directed
by Barbara Colombo and Skye Hirst
Camera and Edit by Barbara Colombo
Starring John Streeter

In moments of candor and honesty, Mr. Streeter lets us peak at who he has been and who he has become over 89 years of life and best of all teaches us his gift for finding delight in small pleasures. He shares with us his unique view that 89 years as Science Historian and “keen minutia hunter” have given him. We find inspiration as we see the “glory” through his eyes and we learn that his life has been about the “gentle pursuit of spirituality.” But most importantly, Mr. Streeter brings us insights for the future as he chronicles the most important discoveries during his lifetime that science can now point to the moment in time when creation began. His conclusion that science cannot go before that moment but religion can is the thesis he brings forth.

Kentucky Blues Documentary

Kentucky Blues

TRT: 28 minutes 1998
Co-produced and directed by
Barbara Colombo and Shelby Lee Adams
Camera, Edit Barbara Colombo

Kentucky Blues is a documentary video expressing the stories of several residents living in remote and isolated areas of Appalachia, Kentucky. These people are cut off from the mainstream, bypassed by much of the development of modern America. Many experience what most Americans would consider impossible living situations. Their religious and cultural values are passed along from person to person and handed down from generation to generation. They have shared their stories with me through the medium of video for the first time. These are people who have chosen to live in remote areas and have an authentic passion for living and remaining in the mountains. Important aspects of their culture are music and religion which serve as an integral part of this video.

Whaddya Want Kid Documentary

Whaddya Want Kid?

TRT: 13 Minutes 1997
Video, voice, edit
By Barbara Colombo

A personal experimental video produced in part during a residency at the Experimental TV Center in Owego NY. This piece pulls imagery and sound from “Road Work” and weaves memory and the personal subconscious from the 2 years following this intensive approach to my own history. Layered imagery, including self-portraits and voice weaves into a journey of separation and distance as a move to the west leaves the familiar and confining.

Road Work Video Documentary

Road Work

Barbara Colombo’s first video, “Road Work” aired on Connecticut PBS in association with the Connecticut Commission on the Arts 1995 Film/Video Competition, as well as screening at several venues and panels throughout the northeast. “Kentucky Blues” recently received a director’s citation from the Black Maria Film and Video Festival and screened at the open sheet venue of the Taos Talking Pictures Film Festival. Video projects in the works are a documentary on a WW2 female veteran Babe filmed on an organic farm in Olympia Washington and a series of videos for the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado.
