This is a short film about the material engagement one has when making Marmalade. From Water to Stainless Steel, Sugar to Glass, Fruit to Plastic. All the materials you encounter, perform as either Liquids, Solids, Grains, or Gases and in making the jam we are reminded that they can all transition from one thing to another.The Sticky Stuff once set, seems to capture, and hold onto the very sunshine that the oranges grow in.
