THE EYE OF THE HARE
As a filmmaker and editor, I’ve been telling other people’s stories for decades. Now I’ve written my own. “THE EYE OF THE HARE” is about family continuity, storytelling, and dexterity. As a two year old, I suffered severe burns to my hands. They ensure that I do things carefully. For me, meaning in life is best found through a slow attention to things. I find real significance in the woods and valleys near home, and the keen stare of a fox or a hare. My father, Oliver Heywood, was a landscape painter, and my love of nature comes from him.
