Sometimes I feel like running to the ends of the earth,

to peer into the abyss.

I wonder what it feels like to teeter there,

For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the LORD our God is to us, whenever we call upon him?

– Deuteronomy, 4:7

Eliot Rausch.

I only recently discovered the films of Eliot Rausch, a documentary filmmaker from Los Angeles. His films capture the brokenness of humanity, yet there are still glimmers of hope, a faith in something bigger. I don’t know what Rausch believes, but God is very present in his work.
