SLO FILM FESTIVAL: APRIL 25-30 2024 ENCORE MAY 1-5

THE NETTLE DRESS

SPONSORED BY: Victoria Grostick & Pam Stein

Using only the fiber of locally foraged stinging nettles, textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years creating a couture dress by hand. A modern-day fairytale and hymn to the healing power of art and nature, THE NETTLE DRESS explores the process of an ancient craft and the journey of using art as an outlet to process grief. Throughout the years, the dress becomes more than just a piece of cloth as it transforms into a woven history, each foot of thread representing and honoring the stories of those Brown has loved and lost.

NOT AVAILABLE DURING THE VIRTUAL ENCORE FESTIVAL.

Plays with TASTING NOTES on May 5th screening.
