Clam Up
Fable: I want the world clean
Fisherman: a birthday wish
Speak: when there are no words
Family History
Forgotten Time


Life shivers as the ground beneath and sky above tremble.

The floral life that has taken root over the decades in the lot next door to me has recently had its inevitable fate as denizens of an urban landscape: what we euphamistically term "redevelopment" translates as certain death for the squatters of the world we like to call our own. This film brings arborial life that has inspred me over the years to the fore, in a piece that's title is meant as much to reflect its structure as to underscore the portentious nature of its subject.
