Gates of heaven originally released as a motion picture in 1978; Vernon, Florida originally released as a motion picture in 1981.
Summary Errol Morris changed the face of documentary filmmaking in the US, and his career began with two remarkable tales of American eccentricity: Gates of heaven uses two Southern California pet cemeteries as the bases for a profound and funny rumination on love, loss, and industry; Vernon, Florida travels to a languorous southern backwater and meets a handful of fascinating folks; a determined turkey hunter, a curious minister, a laconic policeman, engaged in individualistic, sometimes absurd pursuits.
