Photograph of Wind (2001) 16mm, color & b/w, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

My daughter's name is Maya. I've been told that the word "maya" means illusion in Hindu philosophy. As I watch her growing up, spinning like a top around me, I realize that her childhood is not something I can grasp but rather -- like the wind -- something I feel tenderly brushing across my cheek. "Sachs suspends in time a single moment of her daughter." Fred Camper, Chicago Reader San Francisco Film Festival, Onion City Film Festival Sale: VHS $20, also available on Beta or DV upon request
