This woman features in my GEORGIC cine poem. Her reverie on planting kept me going during the making of the film. I met her two years ago when I was shooting in the community garden at 4th Avenue and Baltic in Brooklyn. She talked about her garden as if it were her best friend. I tried to find her a few weeks later by asking people in the garden who she was and nobody could identify her. Recently, my husband Mark saw her picture on this billboard. I still do not know her name, but I do adore her hair, as it reminds me of the roots of a tree. I am sad to say that the garden itself is gone. They paved over paradise, just like the song. Lynne
In homage to the poem of Lawrence Ferlenghetti….
See Bill Brand’s phenomenal moving image subway art as a brillant FOUDROYANT New York City experience.

Sometimes the sweep of technology can be overwhelming. Even FOUDROYANT. The almost 50 year old New York based Film-makers’ Cooperative is facing some major problems . We need the city of New York to stand up for alternative modes of expression. To VATICINATE is to see into the future, and here we can do this with both film and the internet hand in hand. Go to a great New York Times article to understand the situation more clearly.
