How it all started...

This film project started long ago when Emily Fox was making art at BYU and formed a Rock band with Brian Andelin. Emily and Brian were talking about Brian's grandmother Helen B. Andelin and Erin butted into the conversation and said, "that would make a great film!" The first filming took place in Fall of 2010 in Utah. Emily and Erin subsequently flew to Tulsa, Oklahoma, rented a car and drove to the Andelin homestead near Monett, Missouri. We filmed at "Farmville" for 4 days and even stayed in the home where Mrs. Andelin lived before her passing in 2009. We heard first-hand accounts about the Fascinating Womanhood movement and Helen's difficult task of balancing work and home life. She was meticulous and organized and we saw it in her record keeping and tidy home.
