Justin Clifton

Filmmaker Justin Clifton has dedicated his career to telling the stories of people and place, with an emphasis close to his home in the American Southwest. He creates sincere and intimate portraits of humans who are shaped by, and inextricably linked to, the natural environments that surround them. Weaving in beautiful cinematography and rich emotional depth, Clifton’s films are an ode to the raw natural beauty of this rugged landscape and the people who fight the environmental and social justice battles begin waged across the region. He most recently directed Leche y Miel (Milk and Honey), a story of the people of Yuma, Arizona and their connection to the Colorado River, America’s most endangered river.
