Brandon Wilson
1h 37m


Baby spiders take their first wobbly steps. Human hands work in the garden. Waterfalls get tangled up in space and time. Home in the Woods is an immersive portrait of a place viewed from different perspectives and scales. Filmed over the course of two years in Marion County, Oregon, the film contemplates the cycles, patterns and relationships that exist in the forest near the filmmaker’s home.

About the filmmaker:

Brandon Wilson (b. 1982) grew up in the deserts of west Texas. He studied photography and painting and received a BA in studio arts from the University of Texas in Austin. He lives in a small cabin in the woods of northwest Oregon and has been making films since 2014.
