Director's Statement

The music of R. Carlos Nakai filled the office of our edit suite for months and had become a primary soundtrack of my life. I wanted to know more about the man creating this evocative music and reached out to see if he would be willing to hang out with us and a camera for a couple of days and see what came of it. Meeting him and capturing this little slice of his life was a special moment in my life.
