ABOUT THE FILM (an excerpt written by Haruko Nishimura):
The film, by Ian Lucero, was a collaboration between Mandy, Ian and I. Mandy initially had a vision of a Banana slug and an obsession with the beautiful forests of the Smoke Farm (smokefarm.org) . She already had a strong sense of where the characters would dwell and exist. Ian, with his unique perspective - appreciation of hyper-microscopic detail and incredible kinesthetic sense of sound was already at work, sending E- mails from Portland, incredible images he shot and found for the inspirations for the film. Ian and Mandy’s visual sensibility - sculptural, spatial, angles and light - motivated and fascinated me. The concepts organically grew as we started shooting, as if we were runners passing a baton to one another. I watched and helped crochet - Mandy’s fingers crocheted at the speed of a slurping noodle, all the while attending her 4 year old son Hazel with such presence and focus.
