The Rock Charmer (40 minutes)

Round pillars of the old quarry, an old man wanders scratching at the mysteries of the rocks… calling… what have they seen, what are they, what makes them, what stories can be told by these weather blown sentinels? Unwrap geological time, explore the layers of the rock.

Music By Little Boat and Ed Dowie

Also with Night Flyer.
