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.

The Dutch settler town lying beneath Manhattan’s current financial district seen through a mosaic of material remains and landscapes, an entanglement of things past and present.
