Finding community isn’t always an easy thing to do. In a world where information moves at the speed of light and we’re always glued to our phones, human connection can be harder than ever to achieve. With “Intercourse” we explore a small, rural, town in Pennsylvania that, despite many challenges, has maintained a simple way of life. We explore the struggles of coexistence between the Amish and the English. How do these two groups of very different people live in harmony? How do they deal with the tourism brought on by their unique name? In “Intercourse” we explore a town that moves a lot slower than the rest of the world, despite the outside world always pushing in. This is a town that has true community and core values that differ greatly from modern society.

A Life Like This

A documentary portrait, highlighting the lived experiences and creative work of four outsider artists working and living with disability in Central Pennsylvania. Artists with disability, both mental and physical, consistently face discrimination, inequity, and underexposure at both local and national levels. This film aims to de-stigmatize an underrepresented demographic of artists as it tells the four unique stories of Malcolm Corley, Adam Musser, Sybil Roe Thompson and David Nolt who create as a means to communicate and express how art shapes and impacts their lives.
