"Addiction is a family disease. Recovery is a family journey. Here is a glimpse into my life, my family’s life, and what Speak Sobriety is all about. As I continue my speaking tour, I look forward to sharing more of my story in cooperation with Mariano Films. Thank you to everyone who helped make this video possible." – Stephen Hill.

Produced by New Jersey Pictures and associate produced by Joe DeVito III of Mariano Films, this documentary is an inspiring feel-good story that shows us that children have a lot to teach about music, and that a talented teacher can teach his students the most important lesson of all; within themselves is the power to do anything.

WE LOVE YOU (2009)

Documentary Short, 40 minutes

Every summer since 1972 thousands of people co-create a temporary city deep in the wilderness of our national forests. This isn't a music festival, people are there to practice anarchy and hippy spirituality. The "main event" is an elaborate prayer for peace on July 4th. Produced New Jersey Pictures, and produced and edited by Joe DeVito of Mariano Films, We Love You documents the 2008 Rainbow Gathering in Wyoming. The Rainbows' peaceful ways are challenged when federal agents charged with monitoring them shoot pepper spray projectiles into the children's' area of the gathering.
