Film: Who Are U.S. 2016

Who Are U.S. (2016) is a film by Silver Ochre (external link) (Thollem and ACVilla). Traveling throughout the continental U.S. from March to November 2016, Silver Ochre created a full length, visual tone poem documenting a moment of the American experience in the early 21st century. Silver Ochre states, “Though the project was created intentionally during the elections, the results are as much sociological as political and as artistic as sociological. The movie is comprised of a long series of allegorical vignettes that become pieces of a larger puzzle each viewer must solve in their own unique way.”
