The film is available for a limited time from March 11–27 to stream through Vimeo or here on the artist’s webpage at

The Cabin of Mothra Crone” was filmed using an iPhone at Lake Arrowhead, California and includes wild animal footage from security cameras. The film’s narrative follows an old artist crone who lives alone in a deep forest cabin where she is visited by a curious monkey and a mysterious moth. It operates as a self-portrait through character exploration, as Weber herself performs the roles of the three main characters.
