Like a river, historical time is not linear. It changes course, takes detours, and overflows. Shapeshifting currents flow upstream and sideways, changing long-established landscapes. In a program that examines glass slides for magic lanterns, the traces of Dutch colonial life in Manhattan, and the scars of civil war in Abkhazia, these three women documentarians sharply challenge dominant historical narratives and untangle the power structures beneath them. It takes a keen eye to find the way upstream.

Seven inhabitants of a de facto state on the Black Sea unfurl a web of stories about loss and displacement through re-imaginings of dreams and memories of the 1992-93 war in Abkhazia.
