Retired in 2009 and met David Johnson at Hillside Church where she had known his new wife, Jackie, for many years. David, at 84, was concerned about his legacy as the first black student to study photography with Ansel Adams and wanted a film made of his life. After pursuing several dead ends, he asked Mindy to make the film. She taped him speaking at two gallery openings (San Francisco and Atlanta) and that footage became the crux of the film. She wanted to mostly highlight his photographs so the video footage is limited to the bare necessity in the film.
The film, “Positive Negatives” was an official selection at the San Diego Black Film Festival, The San Francisco International Women’s Film Festival, and The Tiburon International Film Festival.
Her second film, Eye Contact – The Photography of Charles Wong is part of a project she is working on with the Director of Photography at the SF Art Institute to create short documentaries on the remaining seven still living students of Ansel Adams during that decade between 1945 and 1955; a group known as the Golden Decade of Photography.
