“A visual feast, a prayer – it carried me on a journey into the heart of things and put me out on the other side. Reordering, reorienting.”
“I’ve never seen anything like it. Highly original. Beautiful and mysterious southern-gothic avant-garde.”
“continues to haunt me weeks after I first saw it”
I mentioned in an earlier post that one of my favorite films of both festivals was Robert Persons’s General Orders No. 9. Less a documentary than a lyrical poetic meditation on the geographical history of Georgia, this film continues to haunt me weeks after I first saw it. Catch it at a festival near you because I think it’s way to oblique for IFC but I am sure it will turn up at Anthology or MOMA at some point.
