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.
