With a single cartridge of Super-8, Taylor Dunne captures her mother’s last visit to her garden. Her body is seen slowly dissolving towards illumination, while her image is forever immortalized in light and silver. The title is borrowed from the Penobscot creation myth of the first woman, The Corn and Tobacco Mother.
