Rick Von Kaenel has been a practicing cameraman for roughly 30 years, first in New York and lately in Santa Fe. He writes that one of the pleasures of a documentary cameraman's life is the exposure (pardon the pun) to so many different subjects. Among these have been: game wardens, clairvoyants, wildlife (air, land and sea), indigenous peoples, WWII German resistance, musicians, politicians, more musicians, trains, ghosts, professional athletes, Tibetan monks, and racehorses. Lucy was one of the first directors he worked with starting in 1983 and one of the last when she found him in Santa Fe in 2007 and asked for his help to finish this film started so long ago.
