Filmmaker’s statement

When I was just a boy in kindergarten my teacher, Miss House, told the class somewhat seriously, “If you learn anything from me, learn this, never lose your imagination.”

I was terrified, worrying constantly that one day my imagination might accidentally fall into the barbecue or out the car window on to the freeway. But it didn’t. It’s still here. It’s the place where this story is bred and nurtured with every last droplet squeezed out with love.
