ABOUT THE SERIES:

“the new colossus: an exploration of why we're here"

The experience of moving, of leaving one place and arriving in another, of creating 'home away from home', however permanent, is a wholly varied and nuanced experience for each individual.
There is no single, monolithic story.

From the creators of Alien of Extraordinary Ability comes "The New Colossus," a mini-documentary series exploring the question 'why are we here?'
It is a poetic investigation of identity, seeking to centralize the bodies, minds, and spirits of each participant, in all stages of the filmmaking process.

The Wire-Puller


2020


Mina Loy - Songs to Joannes VI.

I know the Wire-Puller intimately
And if it were not for the people
On whom you keep one eye
You could look straight at me
And Time would be set back
