Tall Trees at EXquisite Corpse Cinema

On Tuesday December 9th my latest film will premiere in an exquisite corpse program at Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle. Tall Trees is based on photos from a family scrapbook recording the search for bandits after a bank robbery that took place in 1914 in Sedro-Wolley, Washington State. My grandfather (second from the left) was a member of a posse sent to capture the bandits who attempted to escape into Canada. Until recently all I knew about the robbery was the text written on nine photos documenting the event.
