summer project

I’ve just returned from a trip to the Açores, Portugal, filming sites on the islands related to my family’s history, landscapes remembered and misremembered from stories about “the old country” I grew up hearing. Hot tip: security at the Lisbon airport ain’t about to hand check your film unless you can show them a letter from INAC (Instituto Nacional de Aviação Civil), a fact that I’d have figured out earlier if my Portuguese was a bit better.

This project should debut November 30 at a graduate student showcase as part of the First Person Cinema series; it was supported by a Beverly Sears grant from the CU Boulder Graduate School.
