THE THINGS WE KEEP

THE THINGS WE KEEP

Format: Short Documentary
Status: Completed

Grounded in nostalgia, The Things We Keep offers a glimpse of one man’s yearly sojourn into the Coconino Forest to collect firewood and re-connect with his roots. As he recounts his early inspirations and life as a sawmill worker, we discover a past based in a simpler time and an aesthetic appreciation of nature and for the world around us.

Shot in Northern Arizona and Western Washington. Produced in Seattle, Washington.
