Dan Terry, a humanitarian aid worker, spent nearly 40 years living in Afghanistan both devoted to the people and the culture. Dan was one of nine aid workers tragically murdered August 8, 2010, doing what he loved in the place he loved.
Weaving Life is a student made and produced film documenting Dan’s life and work in Afghanistan as told through interviews, video diaries, photo essays and after effects.
Eastern Mennonite University film students embark on a journey to understand what made Dan the lovable and trusted man he is known as.
Survived by his wife and three daughters, Dan’s legacy continues through the telling of stories by his family members and childhood friend, Jonathan Larson.
Through his gift of storytelling, Jonathan Larson captivates audiences by his telling of inspirational stories of Dan’s life as evidenced in the film and Jonathan’s book, “Making Friends Among The Taliban: A Peacemaker’s Journey in Afghanistan,” which is now available.
Weaving Life will air on ABC television stations from Oct. 21-Dec. 16, 2012.
