The Sower Arepo as Works a Wheel

My new film.

16mm (digital transfer); 27 min; 2010.

A festival of antique farming technology in the high plains of Eastern Colorado; a visit to Rabun County, Georgia with a story about growing up self-reliant in the Southern Appalachian mountains as found in back-to-the-land classic The Foxfire book; and folk magic as performance, based on remedies of the Pennsylvania Dutch as collected in 1820 by John Hoffman in Pow Wows or, Long Lost Friend.  Three parts in a film about finding the past in the present, or a message from the future.
