The Song of Grandmother Cricket

When nature is exploited it's time for the people to come together.

When an old woman comes around, she brings with her a song and the rain that follows.  At first the villagers welcome her but when the rains turn to floods she is turned away.  Grandmother Cricket aka Abeula Grillo is a beautiful and poignant representation of how we as a culture have rejected nature… and what we might need to do to save her and ourselves from the consequences that follow.
