The fate of five local college students who went missing in the infamous Spiritual Woods is finally unraveled as previously unreleased footage is made public for the first time. Long thought to be dead, the truth turns out to be much worse.
In 1994, real-life crop artist Stan Herd traveled from Kansas to Manhattan's Upper West Side to create a massive environmental artwork on land owned by Donald Trump. The multi-acre artwork was made from soil, rock, plants and vegetation near an underground railway tunnel. Stan recruited a number of homeless individuals living in the tunnel to become his crew. Over the months it took to complete the earthwork, Stan dealt with a myriad of difficulties in bringing his unique, rural art form to an urban canvas and the many costs his art exacted upon his life. In the process, he unexpectedly encountered the true meaning of his art and it's ultimate, lasting rewards. Written by
A simple, yet moving portrayal of a man committed to his art and his vision of the world. I loved this movie and can't recommend it enough to indie film fans. Great performance by John Hawkes and very strong debut for Chris Ordal. Ordal is definitely someone to watch. Although fans of Stan Herd will most certainly love the film, I think new viewers will be captivated by his story and his "crop art". The crop art is both epic and visually stunning. Also has one of the best opening credit sequences of the last couple of years. Hard to believe they pulled this movie off for $1m. A real credit goes to the filmmakers and crew for pulling that off.
