In the mid-70 s, I was a beginning filmmaker and Sabra was my artist neighbor. I moved to Hollywood and for 30 years I wrote screenplays (features, TV movies, cable), then moved back to Vermont and became a filmmaker. I phoned her and asked if she'd like a movie about herself. She misunderstood, thinking it might be ready in a month, when she had an art opening.
Four years later, we finished. We're both happy with the result.
