SYNOPSIS

An afternoon exercise piecing together minimal details for safekeeping: my grandmother’s garden, her music, recipes for healing and wellbeing.

Shot over a span of three years (2015-2018) in Upstate New York, Chile, Japan, Los Angeles, the California Desert, Miami and Mexico City, this is the second film of a six part 16 mm series, that meditates on love and the act of making.
