"When I stepped into the field of sunflowers I realized that I was in another world. I could no longer see the surrounding fields and road. It was like walking through a dense forest. I had never seen that many tall sunflowers close up before and didnt realize at the time that it wouldnt be long before these giants would no longer be grown, replaced by dwarf varieties. The film is about the experience of being in that field, abstracted by the black and white film, with music composed by Bill Hinkley, who played for years on Garrison Keillors The Prairie Home Companion show."
