Several years ago Los Angeles-based airbrush make-up artist, photographer and designer Adam Tenenbaum was bequeathed several large vintage chandeliers that he thought might look good in his home, but to his dismay they were a bit too large. Then an idea struck him: why not hang a few in the giant tree in his front yard. The Chandelier Tree was born. Filmmaker Colin Kennedy passed the tree almost daily for nearly six years and finally decided to sit down the Tenenbaum to shoot this short documentary about this strange and beautiful tree.
