Footage for this movie was originally shot for family archives.

The greatest challenge in making this movie was photographing its key subject - a very camera-reclusive star, Sylvia.

Original footage was shot with a home camcorder on the day before New Year's Eve, 2001, then re-shot the following summer on Alvin Tsang's Sony Digital 8.

Inspired by the events of 9/11 and Grandma Sylvia's response to them.
