  • James Broughton
  • English
  • Fantasy

“[…] Then Broughton took Eden into his own backyard, filming his 2-year-old son Orion interacting with nature, with the elements, with Papa God in a treetop and Mother Earth inside a red ball. It’s in the film “This is It” (1971) that Broughton combines some of his Zen poems with baby “Adam” encountering the wisdom of the world: This is It
This is really It
This is all there is
And It’s perfect as it is.
There is nowhere to go but Here
There is nothing Here but now
There is nothing now but This
And This is It.” (from: http://bigjoy.org/twirl/exploring-translucent-broughton-films/)
