Notes On Liberty
Believing that he is just on a trip to see the Statue of Liberty for his 5th birthday, Sam composes songs about the statue, poses like the statue, squeals with delight when he finally sees it and when he discovers that she is fact not holding up an ice cream cone as he had suspected. This will be juxtaposed with larger questions that he has asked, and straightforward explanations that his parents give him about the nature of liberty, democracy, tyranny and the reason for welcoming immigrants to America. Without mentioning it directly, Notes on Liberty, will dynamically signal the difference between the ideals of the statue and the verve of the boy with the culture of fear, cynicism and xenophobia that dominates current debates on immigration policy and the war on terror.
Through hand-processing and time-lapse photography, this 16mm experimental film explores the process of photosynthesis in relation to the larger idea of transformation.
