Viewing Notes:

"Hunting, "Produced by Cyrus Pinkham," and "Filmed around North Conway, N.H." cast of "Boy," played by Winthrop Rolfe, and "Dog," played by Teddy. Boy, who has lost an arm, emerges from a shack carrying a rifle; framed in various artful compositions involving leaves and dappled light, he walks with Dog through the forested mountainside, gazes at views over the alley, drinks water from a rushing stream, and kneels to shoot at birds." Notes (from NHF) by Chris Reed and Chris Castiglia, June 2013
