In August and September 2016, I undertook a road trip from Montreal to the south west corner of Saskatchewan, to the borders of Alberta and Montana. I shot 16 and 35 motion picture film, anamorphic, spherical, colour, b&w. The trip was part of my research for a new feature film I wrote, Harlan Falls. After 38 days and 11,000 kilometres, I had a basket full of ideas and many feet of exposed film. Somehow I sifted and distilled everything through the writing.
