Ep 59: “The Peace of Identity” with Michael Rowley, director of ‘Hurdle’

This is part two of our conversation with Michael Rowley who is a filmmaker from Dallas Texas, who also made a film about Palestinian youths, specifically who do parkour. The movie is called Hurdle (Hurdlefilm.com). Now the reason why I wanted to split this into two is to highlight the very vulnerable and very honest way in which Michael approaches identity, either his own or of the people around him, including his subjects. Michael also hands out some amazing advice that mirrors David Ogle’s and that actually began from a conversation that he and another past guest, Remoy, had.

The trailer of Hurdle is here: https://vimeo.com/231203737/ec9eb0a431
