1:10 PM "The Stalk" (Nature)

Director: Mary Scott
Location: Arivaca, Arizona

Release Date: 2009
Run Time: Approx 10-minutes

Photographer & filmmaker Mary Scott documents the final exaltation of life and throes of death of an ancient agave. In the last expression of its life force, the plant shoots a 31 foot stalk into the air, much to the amusement of the desert birds and amazement of the desert humans who watch. The drama unfolds with joy, pathos, and surpise.

"Mary Scott is a photographer, musician and avid naturalist;
who, after winning movie editing software at the Arivaca Film
Exhibition several years ago, discovered that she could merge her
talents into digital filmmaking. Her film projects have been
quite creative and you can see this new film on March 7th!"
