Blood Mirror Raw Footage (12-21-14, 3-15-15), 2015 (44:30, in collaboration with Leo Herrera)
This work documents the interviews and blood donations of each of the nine blood donors in this project. Each of the donors has a unique perspective or expertise that helps explain the flawed nuances of the FDA's policy.
After previewing a selection of the raw footage, MSNBC commissioned Herrera to create a short film for its docuseries Shift. The 6-minute video below originally aired on MSNBC.com and includes additional footage of Eagles creating the sculpture Blood Mirror, with an original musical score by NYC based DJ duo, The Carry Nation. This video premiered three days before World Blood Donor's Day, (June 14, 2015) and during the FDA's 60-day Public Comment Period.
