American Dan Terry and his family spent forty years devoted to the people, the culture, and the landscapes of Afghanistan. Tragically, in August 2010, Dan was among ten humanitarian aid workers assassinated in Afghanistan.
Weaving Life tells of the way Dan wove relationships, joy, partnership, and understanding into his work in Afghanistan. Listen to stories about how Dan and his family confronted assumptions, discarded platitudes, and relentlessly pursued authentic relationships.
Eastern Mennonite University film students, intrigued by Dan’s commitment and humility, embarked on their own journey to understand the story. Through interviews, Dan’s photography, and their own artwork and video journals, the students discover the startling power of sustained commitment and what Dan called “fierce” love.
Dan’s story is told by longtime friends Jonathan Larson and Daniel Taylor, his daughter, Anneli Terry, and his wife, Seija Terry. Also featuring Dr. Lisa Schirch, longtime peacebuilder in Afghanistan. For more information on the making of this documentary, visit www.Weaving-Life.com
