'a film [can be] made entirely with photographs...you don't even need actors; a film can still have tremendous emotional and psychological and philosophical impacts even though there are no human beings in two dimensional or three dimensional reality on the screen...'

~ William Greaves
pioneering African-American film maker
Emmy award winner


our conversation at Sri Aurobindo Ashram during my adolescent years still remains etched
this film is dedicated to you, William Greaves, and to that memory of our conversation...
