In 'Resurrection Slope' A young boy at the brink of adolescence takes a harrowing journey through a mystical dreamworld, confronting his emerging questions of individuality and gender. Through splintered fantasies of his reckless, fading beauty of a mother and cruel, alcoholic father, he performs a holy ritual that will one day form into a defiantly singular adult persona.

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 stunning film that should be seen by the masses!
From the films open with Stan as a young man first finding his passion in an instant as rain drops fall, to the title credits so nicely woven in to the fabric of the stunning cinematography all the way to final credit roll, you cannot take your eyes off the screen. Every aspect of this just works.
You must see the beauty of this film for yourself. I could never have expected a film of this subject matter to keep me glued to my chair while concerned if Stans plan will pan out. The hurdles he faces, the mounting debt, the needs of his new surrogate family in the city, his wife and child and his passion for the earthwork draw you in. Everything flowed. I forgot there were editors, camera people, grips, actors, and all of the other folks who make movies come to life. This was seamless and stunning to watch. Without car crashes or special effects, this film captured my heart and attention. It brought tears to my eyes and laughter to my world. I will never look at a plot of land the same again. The entire team should be proud! (This is an excerpt of a longer review that I wrote)
