Bill Morrison, 2021
USA, DOC, 00:12:09
A mob raging due to the lies they were sold, and believed to be true, tries to force entry into a government building and take justice into their own hands. We could be describing the recent events that took place in Washington last January, but this is just one of the episodes portrayed in “Buried News”, which uses images from the 20s of the last century. Bill Morrison returns to the archival footage he found in Dawson City to remember and contextualize some moments in the troubled history of the USA racial conflicts, episodes that remind how the manipulation of public opinion and its disastrous consequences are not a recent phenomenon. The stunning images of a peaceful demonstration and the contrast with the angry mob highlight the link to the past and the repeating of history. One of the most important auteurs in contemporary cinema, Bill Morrison returns to Curtas, which has already featured him at Solar and also co-produced his 2016 short film “The Dockworker’s Dream”.
