Portrayals of artists as moody, solitary, eccentric and impoverished are a familiar stereotype that traces its roots to the 1500s. Even in the 19th century, the image of bohemian artists serially evicted from drafty Parisian garrets persists. Artist Jane Richlovsky shares her own story of artist displacement, upending the myth, using it as a catalyst for a discussion about how artists and their communities might write a new story together.

An astounding documentary on Jim Harrison, an American writer known for his poetry, fiction, reviews, essays about the outdoors, and writings about food. Described as "a force of nature,” his work has been compared to that of William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway. Poet and critic Richard Tillinghast declared in TheNew York Times that “Mr. Harrison has few equals as a writer on outdoor life, the traditional heritage and proving ground of the American male.”
The film follows Snyder and novelist Jim Harrison (Dalva, Legends of the Fall), as the two old friends wander along trails of the central California coast in a remote area untouched for centuries. They debate the pros and cons of everything from Google to Zen koans. Archival materials and commentaries from Snyder’s literary contemporaries, friends, and intimates punctuate the discussions.
