Several years ago, Ness showed me this amazing documentary film by Merian Cooper (who later directed KING KONG in 1933) called GRASS: A NATION'S BATTLE FOR LIFE. It reminded me of an earlier documentary called NANOOK OF THE NORTH, but GRASS is far better because it is a real documentary where in NANOOK the directors made the Inuit people recreate rituals and wear clothing they no longer wore. Anyways, GRASS is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen and for some reason I have been thinking about it a lot lately. It was a really hard film to find forever... and now it's available in it's entirety just a click away!!!
