"For ‘Streamside Day’ I invented a kind of score, a scripted program, and I filmed that- all these people traveling to experience what they think is wilderness. In fact, it’s a wilderness that’s a total construct- rebuilt by man for four hundred years. So I started the film with a re-enactment of the beginning of Bambi, with the deer going from nature to this new town."
