John Cage Mushroom Hunting in Stony Point, by Jud Yalkut, is made out of filmic impressions of composer John Cage, mushroom hunting on his home ground of Stony Point, New York. He’s visiting his home for the last time, radiating love towards his friends and buying fruits and vegetables at the farm market before returning to New York City.
