Trivia

  • The film was based on Ross' s moving to Alabama in 2009 to live with the families he would be filming, and to almost a decade of observations among their community.( in contrast, when James Agee and Walker Evans went to Alabama in 1936 to document the poverty of the Depression there, they only spent three weeks .)

Ross’ debut is scattershot, and lacking in the consistent purpose that articulates a filmmaker’s intent.

The film can be difficult to get a handle on, but eventually encourages you to surrender to its poetic moods and distinctive rhythms.

At its strongest, the film feels like kin to Kirsten Johnson’s great Cameraperson (2016), a free-associative nonfiction memoir comprised mostly of B-roll and personal footage. Though the subject here isn’t Ross himself (despite a few offscreen aural appearances) but an entire community that, in both micro- and macrocosmic senses, has remained historically unacknowledged and unseen.
