Chick Strand's documentaries and experimental films live on after her death recently at the age of 78. These stills are from her 1986 "Fake Fruit Factory," a 16 mm film documentary mostly shot in close-up. Strand's camera patiently observes women at work preparing and painting paper-mache fruits. A non-sync audio track weaves in a variety of voices in Spanish with English subtitles.
