Marfa, “Adam’s World” and Documentarianisms

This little slice of ethnically diverse-rancher-eccentric artist-mixed traveler-small town

Adam and Krista Bork, co-creators of Food Shark, live in Marfa, TX.  They run a mom and pop business providing fresh food to their community via a food truck.  Adam Bork, of Earthpig and Fire, has completed many original art and music pieces along with his hobbies of collecting vintage electronics and cars.  An incredible character indeed. Both of them were lovely to get to know and it was a complete honor to have been let-in on their life for these few days.

Anyway, let’s get to it: below is our end product that was screened at Marfa Book Store on Friday, March 30th.  Enjoy.
