Hello there! We are The Coleys, and we're both filmmakers and creative directors of a nonprofit called Art Within. Our first project? We're making a documentary called A Kingdom of Tea & Strangers.

A Kingdom of Tea & Strangers is a feature documentary chronicling one summer at L'Abri Fellowship, a short-term "monastery hostel" providing shelter for spiritually-homeless people and a hospitable space for honest questions. The film follows a group of students from around the world as they look for belonging, wrestle with doubts & uncertainty, and grapple with finding spirituality and community in their lives back home. 

During summer of 2022, we completed our filming at English L'Abri—and now we're in the middle of post-production, sound mixing, musical scoring, and some additional followup interviews with our characters in their homes around the world. 

Even though filming is complete, we still need the funds to finish post-production and release. If you’d like to support the film, you can donate to the project using Visa/PayPal by clicking here or send a check to Art Within Inc. at the address below. Art Within is a 501(c)(3) company and donations are tax-deductible.
