Description

A retired worker for the highways department in rural Arkansas has been making films starring local townsfolk for over 30 years. Phil Chambliss's invented world onscreen perpetually intertwines with reality in a blurred area between fact and fiction, good and evil. Where do we take our life lessons from and how engaged are we with the dark and messy world around us? Through actions and words both in front of and behind his lens we see how one man lives in a self-contained Universe, out in the bayou. GLASS EYES OF LOCUST BAYOU is a mesmerising short film about a man who documents a dark and strange version of Americana.
