Spinning a Yarn?

Spinning Title


The new short, “Spinning a Yarn?” is a transcendental journey. As the unusual protagonist, a silkworm, spins a yarn about his fellow kind’s regrets, an unexpected parallel strikes surprisingly close to home.

I had a pleasure to film it last year in Muang Thee, Isaan (Thailand) and it was only possible thanks to help of those amazing people:

- Joy Pasakanon and the whole Pasakanon family
- Goob Gift (Gip) and her family
- JJ Harrison
- Brandon James
- Weavers from Ban Tha Sawang
- Richie Bennett


The film is not yet available online as it now on it’s festival circuit. “Spinning a Yarn?” has already won a grand award at the Faces of Wisdom Film Festival in Helsinki.
