Lily Dale is a spiritualist community in Chautauqua County, New York. Pilgrims and tourists swarm the hamlet in summer, but in the fall, Lily Dale becomes a more intimate setting for spectral communions. This film explores the town's Leolyn Woods, pet cemetery, Inspiration Stump, and Fairy Trail. Music by Nate Wooley.
This film was processed at Niagara Custom Lab in Toronto. The optical soundtrack was made by Ray Cook and Dean Allen at Skylight Studios Ltd. Post-production was completed at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto.
