EARTH TO EARTH (2005) - a straight8 film
"With great power comes great responsibility" is a phrase we have come to associate more with superheroes than allotments, yet for the owner of one particular allotment, this phrase has never rung more true. Earth to Earth follows the life and times of allotment 4a with its owner describing how he came to terms with its "special" qualities.
This film was made in accordance with the rules of straight8. The film was shot in sequence on a single roll of super8 film. No editing, no re-takes. The film was a straight8 winner in 2005 and was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
