The Sower Arepo as Works a Wheel

16mm on digital video; 27 min; 2010.

A festival of antique farming technology in the high plains of Eastern Colorado; a story of growing up self-reliant in the Southern Appalachian Mountains as found in back-to-the-land classic The Foxfire Book, seen against the contemporary landscape of Rabun County, Georgia; and folk magic as performance, based on Pennsylvania Dutch remedies 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.
