She wanted ideas for the International Arts Society film series, specifically films in the same spirit as Antonioni's Zabriskie Point. When I walked into the kitchen just now, I was excited to see the book on the counter, with a handwritten list next to it. I picked up the list, eager to see what she had come up with:

Laundry Soap
Green Garbage Bags
White Garbage Bags
Body Wash
