2013 | Super 8 | Silent
FALLING NOTES UNLEAVING is made from footage gathered in the fall of 2012 and edited in early 2013. Anne Charlotte Robertson, friend and fellow super8 filmmaker, died. I attended her funeral and filmed the burial of her ashes. She was famous for her diary films and I thought i important to honor her work by filming an event she couldn't.
The burial took place in a wonderful old cemetery in Framingham, mass., which lightened a sad event. The film also includes footage shot in the mountains outside of Portland and the streets of Cambridge and Somerville Ma.
It is not a diary. The title and the film reflect Gerard Manley Hopkins poem SPRING AND FALL.
Luther Price, Bob Brodsky, Tara Nelson, Gordon Nelson, Liz Coffey, Heather Green her daughter Rosealee, and their dog Blue, as well as many other people and animals.
