Journeyman Shines On

Shine On from The Grid on Vimeo.

The Grid is a series profiling Chicago businesses, subcultures and landscapes. It is funded in part by the Chicago Instructional Technology Foundation Digital Media Production Fund. The Rev. Henry Isaac has tested his faith as a journeyman window washer since 1974, and shared his faith as a preacher since 1994. He currently washes for Shine On Group and ministers to the congregations of Englewood's New Zion Grove MBC and Austin's Community Fellowship MBC.

Director Nadav Kurtz is a filmmaker currently based in Beacon, NY, who has worked with the Chicago post-production firm Cutters since 2007. In summer 2011, Nadav produced two documentaries on Chicago window washers. The other, Paraíso, won Best Documentary Short at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, played many other festivals and was shortlisted for an Academy Award.
