Digital Tapestries’ founder, Hart Ginsburg is a licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and initially used this platform as art therapy for his clients. Having lived in Japan, he incorporates aspects of Eastern philosophy into his interactive books and films. Ginsburg joins Worldview to discuss the themes and the intercultural influence in his new film. Joining him is Porter Green, who specializes in working with transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
