Watch my Guam Documentary Now!

Jessica Peterson

A year in the making and I’m proud to say I finished my first documentary film. “American Soil, Chamorro Soul” made its world premiere on April 29, 2016 at a film festival on Guam. The doc was well-received and I felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment and relief to have finished it, even through the gruelling process that was post-production!

The best part? You can stream and download the film on Vimeo now! Of course, you can also buy the DVD, which has deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes featurette.

A lot of people have asked what my next project is and, indie filmmakers can relate, the emotional energy I poured into this project needs a recharge. I’m taking some “time off” (I don’t really know how not to work) and traveling the U.S. to see friends, family, and national parks. I would love to work on another documentary perhaps later in the later.

I’ve got some exciting projects and travel coming up that I can’t wait to tell you about! All in good time.

I’d love to hear your feedback on the film, so leave comments here or on the Vimeo page.

Watch now!
