“Late last night I had me a dream,
I was out fishin’ in a whiskey stream…”
–Talking Fishing Blues, Woody Guthrie
Welcome to whiskeystream.com, the official website for Stephen Stanley and for Whiskey Stream Productions.
The name “Whiskey Stream” is a reference to the work of Woody Guthrie, who often sings about finding an enchanted land where the streams flow with whiskey and wine. I see the whiskey stream as a metaphor of my vision of the role of film, which is as a medium to recast the world as we wish it was or as how we see it could be. My own streams run with robot time travelers, disco queens, gay Vikings, punk rock Jehovah’s Witnesses, rubber chickens, hip hop dancers, and banana peels (as well as the occasional glass of whiskey). So grab a raft, check it out, and let me know what you think.
