Watermarks

Watermarks

An experimental documentary about Richmond, Virginia, where Confederate monuments obscure the buried traumas of the slave trade along the James River. The river becomes a line to trace a history that remains invisible. Detailed landscapes, hand-developed 16mm film, and unconventional sound design unearth a buried world, as the film questions how the past has been recorded or suppressed.

14 minutes.
