MONO_AFTER_LOVESTORY (SLOWDOWN yt mid auto)
premiered at Lincoln Calling film festival 2009

An ultra personal remix project, shot on my grandparents farm, the house now empty and my grandpa recovering from a broken hip on New Year’s 2009. This is my ‘kid taping stuff’ type raw footage.

We stopped to see the current state of the farmhouse, disturb mating snakes in the field, and got some quality time with 92 year old grandpa Virgil.
I slowed down the most corniest love song currently on FM radio and it just got sad and scary.

It’s my twilight tribute to my families farmstead in Kansas, seen many decades since it’s most productive days. So many trophies and spindles. This farmhouse belonged to my grandma Faye’s parents first home originally…

It’s a really really slow and spooky.
Rhett
