"In Place Out of Time" is a poetic portrait of a fourth generation New Mexican who sold his backhoe and picked up a camera in pursuit of a photographic quest. Eight years ago, at the age of 65, Embree â€œSonnyâ€ Hale had a spark of inspiration and started a quixotic journey to take a picture of every petroglyph and pictograph in New Mexico.
This film illustrates Haleâ€™s day-to-day triumphs, challenges and survival strategies as he pursues his passion to capture and preserve the memory of ancient inscriptions on rock. A true-life Western, "In Place Out of Time" is set in the stunning landscapes of New Mexico and captures the grit and gumption of a man who follows his heart and pursues his true lifeâ€™s work. Ultimately, this film takes a gentle and multi-layered look at an individualâ€™s eternal connection to community, landscape, and memory.
