hawai`i tourism film starring elizabeth logue, just after her role in the 1966 film, “hawaii” (based on the james michener novel).
“night time’s a swinging time in honolulu”
the sound of elizabeth’s voice as she narrates is lush , velvety and subdued … like a billy holiday record playing on a rainy day. but its just on the audio quality of a low budget toursit film from the 60’s.

after a visit in japan lead sussman from the oldest woman in the world to a 7,000 year old japanese cedar tree … she endeavored to capture photographs of the oldest living things in the world.
the result is a book full of nature photos in desaturated hues, framed by thick borders of whitespace and handwritten captions. followed (perhaps) by some contemplation on nature, time and life.
the oldest: bacteria in siberian tundra
the epic adventure: antarctic moss on elephant island
the one in our backyard: palmer’s oak in riverside, california. nearby is a cement factory and suburban sprawl.
the metaphor: this fallen bald cypress was alive when sussman started her endeavor, but burned down after a meth session in the tree’s hollow trunk.
