"Transforming Hearts and Minds through Film"
Matt Duhamel, a former TV news and radio personality, has turned his attention to helping others through the power of independent film with his company Metamora Films. He agrees with the idea that film can help individuals, communities and entire societies by increasing compassion, tolerance, understanding and forgiveness. By learning from his own personal trials and past failures, Matt uses his experiences as life changing tools and applies them to his thought-provoking films.
Metamora Films has been producing transformative films since 2012. From our first documentary film, "What Makes Me Tic?", we looked at the effects of Tourette's Syndrome on individuals, families, and their communities. In the narrative, "Last Day With Lizzy", we watched the characters Lizzy and Mark attempt to reconnect as father and daughter in an emotional film about grief and second chances.
Forgiveness and compassion is the theme subject in our latest documentary film, "The Forgiveness Journey". Psychologists, authors and everyday people who have faced personal trials take a fresh look at the long, difficult journey of the forgiveness process.
