We came to the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar to present Jack Smith's film Flaming Creatures, although we were not included among the official guests. We slept outside and experienced Vermont night in our bones. The morning was beautiful and we all felt great, we felt we that we were the "Monks of Cinema." The eye-pod will give you another glimpse into my way of filming.
