Sarah Morris:

“I love the Farnsworth House in Illinois. There's this spot nearby where Lord Palumbo built a swimming pool and then of course, it was never kept up. Butterflies breed there because there are so many insects. When we were shooting the film Points on a Line in that spot, we were being bitten alive by mosquitoes while trying to figure out a way, technically, to capture what it was we were seeing. It was getting dark and these butterflies were moving around very fast. It was very, very difficult but one of my most favorite moments from the shoot!”
