The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

“Based on Bailey’s award-winning 2010 natural history memoir of the same name, the gorgeous movie features Ariela Kuh as the ill woman and narration by Daryl Hannah. But the real star is the white-lipped forest snail (Neohelix albolabris).” —The San Francisco Examiner

When a woman is bedridden by a mysterious pathogen, a forest snail unexpectedly takes up residence on her nightstand. Together, the woman and snail share an intimate journey of survival and resilience. Their captivating and graceful explorations expand the boundaries of the bedroom. An intimate and surprising live action story. Adapted from the award-winning nonfiction memoir of the same title.
