'Cache Girl Saves The World' - A Novel In Visions
"Bold, provocative, and highly experimental, Cache Girl Saves the World introduces a new medium for literary fiction: the 'novel in visions,' which combines audio of the novel's text with still photographs of some of its action, packaged in DVD format.
“The novel tells the story of Ta'li, a young runaway whose Cherokee ancestors died on the Trail of Tears. Searching for peace for herself and the world, Ta'li finds herself in the swamps of Southern Illinois' Cache River, where, with the help of the Swamp Asp and the legendary Big Muddy Monster, she embarks on a daring quest to bring her vision of empathy, empowerment, unity, social justice and ecological wisdom to a humanity seemingly bent on self-destruction.
"Shot predominately on location in Southern Illinois by principal photographer Sarah Dalby, Cache Girl Saves the World features stunning photographs–both abstract and concrete–of the area's natural beauty, and of Grammy Award-winning musician, American Indian Film Award-nominated actress, storyteller, and renowned dancer Thirza Defoe, of the Ojibwe and Oneida Nations, who portrays Ta'li.
“Ms. Defoe co-produced the novel with the author, Adam E. Stone, whose previous novels are Xamon Song, Kingston Fugue, and The New Harmonies."
Here is a link to the Internet Movie Database, where you can view 3 short excerpts from the project:
