WOW BOB WOW!
Only today I've encountered this gem. I stumbled upon this by going through the collector's corner on dugpa. Probably a lot of the oldbies are well aware of its existence but today it completely blew my mind so I thought I'd share. This is really amazing stuff! There's a lot of exterior and interior shots in North Bend/Snoqualmie. Apparently the footage was shot by a Japanese film crew and then released only in Japan on laserdisc. You can view it in its entirety on youtube.
Discovering and watching this really gave me those good ol' nostalgia vibes! Some Highlights for me were the inside of the train graveyard (Laura Palmer's theme), it had an Eraserhead feel to it, and then there's some old photos of logging and natives (Bookhouse boys theme) which really intrigues me!
It comes with Japanese subtitles, anyone have any clue on how to translate those?
