Dir. Christopher LaMarca. USA. 2016. 75 mins. New York Premiere. A Grasshopper Films release. In English.Three young goat farmers adapt to the seasons and come to terms with the physical and emotional grit required to live at the mercy of the land. Told without aid of interviews or expert analysis, this empathetic and experiential film is a visceral meditation on a lifestyle born of self-reliance, a sensual homage to the heart and soul of a farmer. Gorgeously filmed by director and renowned still photographer Christopher LaMarca, and with a knockout sound design to match, Boone makes for an enrapturing sensorial experience. Preceded by Animals Under Anaesthesia: Speculations on the Dreamlife of Beasts (Dirs. Brian M. Cassidy, Melanie Shatzky. 2016, 14 mins.) Part lyrical document, part farce, part Buñuelian fantasia, this visually and sonically audacious film explores the imagined unconscious of animals. Images of sex, death and the natural world are made manifest in the murky and disquieting dreams of a dog, a cat, a pig and a rabbit.
