Corner Plot

Corner Plot is an independent short doc made by old friends and filmmaking partners Andre Dahlman and Ian Cook. The film explores the life of Charlie Koiner, an 88-year-old man who farms the one-acre plot behind his home. The documentary made an imprint on the festival circuit as an official selection for AFI Silver Docs, the Environmental Film Festival, and DC Shorts, among others. The U.S. Department of State also featured Corner Plot as part of its annual American Documentary Showcase. As part of that program, Andre traveled to Tajikistan and organized workshops for local filmmakers to discuss documentary filmmaking.
