With shooting 90 percent complete, Sweetheart Deal is in the process of editing and raising money. They aim to complete the film by September and submit it to festivals. We visited their Ballard studio to discuss the film and watch the current teaser video—seven minutes of film so poignant it triggered tears.
What made you decide to make this movie? Haradon It took me a long time to find the story. I started shooting with friends and it was very inconsistent. We were getting interesting stuff, but the visual look and the sound were not great. So I put together a trailer in and showed it as a work in progress at the retreat that the Seattle Documentary Association puts together every year.
It got an amazing reaction—and Gabriel was there. I got back home and he contacted me to say he was interested in coming on board.
How would you describe the film? Heroin has become a national epidemic. Every city has an Aurora Avenue. People see prostitutes and they have all sorts of negative connotations. But what about the reason some people are prostitutes? The reason is because they need to take a shot every eight hours. The fear of withdrawal is so strong that they lose their families and everything dear to them.
And a lot of these girls came from good homes. Miller : I feel really lucky to work with these people. All of our subjects are driven to participate in the film. Haradon: Not everybody knows how heroin addiction unfolds. If you want to get high on top of that, you need more. And as your tolerance grows even more. So that means you have to turn more tricks or find another way to come up with cash. But we also see wonderful people who have an incredible resilience. Skip to content.

Gabriel Miller has been shooting short documentaries of single Seattle artists for three years now. But in his latest project, "Degrees of Inspiration," he's trying to get at the context, the interconnectedness, the flow between artists and works.
He's featuring three artists instead of just one: animator Britta Johnsoncellist and composer Lori Goldstonand sound artist Susie Kozawa. We are told stories about how collaboration, friendship, and a flow of ideas can spark inspiration and nurture creativity.
This concept is taken one step further with a portrait of the Northwest Film Forum, an organization that each of the artists has some meaningful connection to. Want a sense of his work? Here are two from his Vimeo page. Dear readers, We need your help.

The result: pathways to global citizenship for children, career ladders and professional-growth opportunities for educators, and alliances with a wide range of partners -- both close to home and around the world.
She shares advice for other districts that want to offer their children an international education. We had to show that this was going to be good education for all kids. I knew that it would be, but we had to have the data to show it.
Now we do. We can see the gains in reading, math, science -- right across the board, and for all kids. All the pieces embedded in it -- academic excellence, language fluency, technology integration, innovative teaching -- are about preparing students for the world. As we have expanded to new schools, we have enhanced what that means and engaged with partners, such as the Asia Society and Confucius Institute. But our model remains consistent.
It needs to be part of a pathway so that students can continue with international education from elementary to middle to high school. We have built pathways in three areas of the city. The pathways currently include four K-5 schools, two middle schools, and one high school [a second high school will open in the fall ].
We wanted to ensure we had a robust program in middle and high school, so we offer immersion continuation at both those levels. When I started as principal of John Stanford International School, we had a committee -- including teachers -- that defined teacher expectations.
For example, you will learn another language if you are not bilingual already. You will write unit plans that incorporate a global perspective. Then we asked all staff, 'Can you commit to this? Are you able to collaborate with colleagues?
'Degrees of Inspiration': Gabriel Miller's New Film Portrait of Three Seattle Artists
With every new school since then, we've had the principals and staff work together to define expectations. If teachers start down this path and find out they're not comfortable, they can voluntarily transfer out during the first two years. That holds everyone accountable. We recommend funding an engagement year before you open as an international school.
Let your principal and teachers go visit other schools and see international education in action. If you want people to be committed and prepared to do this type of work, you need to respect their time and give them the professional development they need. In the start-up year, budget extra time and resources for teachers to develop unit plans with a global perspective. Your library may need to develop its international collection.
In years two and three, budget for ongoing professional development and support to sustain the model. We spend a year on planning to make sure that's all in place before a new school opens.We need your help.

'Degrees of Inspiration': Gabriel Miller's New Film Portrait of Three Seattle Artists

We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you. E den is a film about a suburban teenage girl kidnapped from her hometown in New Mexico and taken into a warehouse outside Las Vegas, where she is forced into a factory of sex slaves headed by a crooked US Marshal.
The girls live in punishing conditions. They're lined up for mandatory pregnancy tests and mystery injections. Tracking cuffs are strapped to their ankles. Their clients come from every level of American society: businessmen, fraternity guys, politicians.
Assigned the name Eden, the girl we follow is imprisoned, beaten, raped, whipped, and tortured. Her only route to escape is through the ultimate betrayal, convincing sex-trafficking ringleaders she is loyal to them by becoming their madam—selling other women to save herself.
As the movie makes clear, Eden's story is based on the life of a real woman. She is Chong Kim, a noted crusader against sex trafficking. At a film festival in Milan, Eden 's producers and its director also won awards. By the closing credits, the theater had fallen under a terrible trance.
Except for the scuffling sounds of tall stools being set up before the swooping red curtains, there was a hush. It was hard for me to focus on what they were saying with the movie still flooding my mind, but their message was clear: What you just saw should wake you up. Sex trafficking is far more common than you think, and it happens right here in the United States, not just in exotic faraway locations. Chong Kim, the person the movie was based on, had shared her story in writing before.
She was known in the anti-sex-trafficking world, and she is a regular speaker on being a human trafficking survivor, represented by the global speaker's agency American Program Bureau. Two years before this screening, she had e-mailed James Barnes, founder of the nonprofit organization Breaking Out, whose mission is "to identify, investigate, and rescue victims of human trafficking," according to its Facebook page. Kim was contacting Barnes, according to Barnes, to offer to help raise money for Breaking Out.
Barnes describes himself as a private investigator who was first exposed to sex trafficking when he was investigating a missing child case, and then made sex trafficking his cause. Asked about his work during a phone interview in November, he told me, "We just lost a total, in two different cases, of four girls in Guatemala.
We had the intel, but we weren't able to go get 'em. We couldn't raise the airline tickets to go there, which is a shame. It's not very expensive, but I don't have the money. Barnes remembers Kim talking about books and movies she was involved with that would raise money for his cause.
She was "really a hero to me," Barnes said, "because I rescue people but I never get to see what happens to them. But soon, Barnes said, Kim actually started asking him for money so that she could travel—with the promise that she would publicize Breaking Out in her travels—"which is kind of one of our red flags. On June 4,four years after their correspondence started, Barnes surprised the world by publishing an announcement on Breaking Out's Facebook page.More Obituaries for Gabriel Miller.
