You’re literally going to have to pinch me and wake me up from this dream. We made a movie!! And the world premiere was in Portland, OR this past weekend.
Our documentary film chronicles mine and Taylor’s experiment to source all of our ingredients from a 200 mile radius of our home for the 30 days of September. We met so many rad farmers, ranchers, fisherman and many other food producers in our neck of the woods. It was one of the most transformative experiences of my life and I’m so excited to share it with you all!
We’ve been working on this little film nonstop for the past 5 months. And by we, I really mean the film makers. They have put in SO many hours of hard work, editing, watching, deleting, adding back in, audio, color correcting, finding the right music, watching some more (and so much more that I don’t even know about!) And hot damn, it’s finally here!!! And we got to watch it with strangers, family and friends alike at the historic Clinton St. Theater in my home city of Portland, OR.
I can’t tell you how surreal it was to stand in the way back with Taylor, Michael and David (the two film makers) and watch the movie and observed the audience. It was a total trip to see it in real time with a crowd. Thank you everyone who came out to support us. We cannot put into words what it means to have this little movie and story that is so near and dear to our hearts out there in the world. And today, the documentary is available for download worldwide. I hope you all enjoy this film and story that has literally changed our lives. Head on over to localthirty.com to rent or buy the film.
And last but certainly not least, thank you to all the farmers and producers who welcomed us into their homes (or onto their boats) and let us experience just a little glimpse into their daily lives of providing food for our community. And I cannot tell you how grateful I am to Modoc Stories for helping me tell this story. It’s been a wild ride and I can’t believe the movie is out there! I hope you all enjoy it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support.
