Soothing shots of the countryside complement a picturesque image of the landscape. But something hangs in the air and change is unstoppable. The creeping specter of a horrifying future permeates the environment. The found-footage film, which can be read as a portrait of the United States before the last presidential election, excels for original work with music and imagination.


Synopsis

Soothing shots along the Hudson River in upstate New York complement the serenity of the landscape. But there is something in the air and change is unstoppable. The creeping specter of a horrifying future begins to permeate the environment. Fern Silva’s found-footage film, which can be read as a symbolic portrait of the United States before the last presidential election, excels for original work with music and imagination.
