On a clear southern California day in March of 2010, a small film crew went outside with a camera and recorded what they saw. What they saw was disconcerting to say the least. The realization that there is an apparent cover-up behind much of what is going on in our environment leads to even more discomfort. This film begins a dialogue by presenting theories and exposing hazards attributed to a worldwide phenomenon affecting our environment.
“What’s Up?” was created as part of the 2010 International Documentary Challenge, in which a short non-fiction film had to be written, filmed, and produced within a five-day period. First-time documentary filmmaker Kim Sheridan accepted this challenge, but took it one step further. She chose to do it all with a crew of only two: herself and her husband. Kim wrote, produced, directed, co-filmed, co-edited, narrated, and even created the musical score for “What’s Up?” It is her intention that the film will encourage viewers to open their eyes and their minds, and to take action to make a positive difference in the world.
This is the first documentary produced by EnLighthouse Entertainment. Kim Sheridan founded EnLighthouse with the goal of spotlighting important and often obscure issues that affect us and our world but are often overlooked or altogether unknown.

Kim believes that change begins with knowledge, and knowledge begins with education. It is her goal to help make the world a better place; and to teach compassion and respect for the Earth and all living beings. Integrity is the number one priority in all that she does. Kim feels that film is a very powerful tool of change, and this film is her first documentary effort in that regard.
“What’s Up?” will be showing in a well suited context, at the Awareness Festival. This festival was formed by the non-profit charity Heal One World. Net profits from the festival go towards furthering the goal of preventative and holistic healthcare. This film, music, and arts festival is being held from May 5th-8th. To learn more about the Heal One World non-profit organization, visit www.HealOneWorld.com.
Filmmakers, including Kim Sheridan, will be in attendance for the festival. Kim Sheridan will be participating in a Q & A session after the screening of the short films on Friday May 6th. This will be a wonderful forum to discuss the environmental topics addressed in the documentary. Bring your own environmental concerns or unanswered questions to the screening and subsequent discussion!
