CHAINSAW
25 mins, 35mm  (2007)

Frank and Ava Gardner live out in the country, amongst the kookaburras and the cattle.  Their jobs are menial, but they are true romantics at heart. Moving between fact and fiction, Hollywood and Spain, past and present, “Chainsaw” is a chain of stories about romance and celebrity, machismo and chainsaws, fantasy and death. And how the natural world endures.
