Filmmaker chooses home over Hollywood

Quechan filmmaker says he's grateful for blessings in lifeSo far Golding has created one fictional movie and numerous documentaries. That fictional piece was his first and by far his most successful. "When the Fire Dims" earned showings at film festivals throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia. That's the one that also got invited to be shown at the famed Sundance Film Festival.

That first movie tells the story of a young American Indian man in L.A. who loses himself in alcoholism. Golding, who wrote the script and shot the film, distributed his work around universities coast to coast through a filmmakers' co-op. In addition to all the big festivals, the fictional film won honors at the American Indian Film Festival and the Marin County Film Festival.
