    A first edition of Finnegan’s Wake in great condition, in a hand-made box, from the filmmaker’s mother's library. The film is, in part, about how our families influence us.

And they also collected (and sometimes read!) books that inspire the filmmaker to want to find new ways of telling the stories those images touch on.
