APPLE BUTTER BOIL
1979-2013, video (from super 8mm film),
color and B&W, silent, 8 minutes
Boiling apple butter over big outdoor files was a two-day ritual that took place every year at the Grange Hall, next door to my house. The hot cauldrons had to be stirred constantly, and the movements of the people involved seemed practiced and choreographed, like a dance.
