Civil War Surveillance Poems (Part 1)

CIVIL WAR SURVEILLANCE POEMS_05.jpg

The first iteration of a five-part feature film of speculative experimental nonfiction, which contemplates an impending American civil war via lyrical nonfiction, mixing call-in radio, twenty years of verité footage from the filmmaker’s archive, and robots. The film is partly a nostalgic political travelogue and partly a pre-war surveillance record, deconstructing our past, future and present political moment, with its clashing ideologies.

Civil War Surveillance Poems (Part 1) will be followed by a live online Q&A with Mitch McCabe which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.
