Due to the lack of actual interview footage of Russell, this film uses artificial archival materials of an actor wearing Russell's clothes, filmed around Iowa and New York City. Filmed using the outmoded VHS and Super8 formats, the film's recreations are inexact reconstructions of Russell's life, attempting to produce a dream-like quality similar to Russell's music.
