Following the Box (2015)
26min · Documentary, Short, History · 1 January 2015
An estate-sale find of a shoe box filled with old photographs and negatives made in India in 1945 leads a Chicago couple half-way around the world. As they 'follow the box' to try and unravel the mystery behind who took these compelling photos and for what purpose, they gather together contemporary Indian artists who each draw inspiration from these images, and create new artworks in response. The resulting film is a cross-cultural exploration of the power of art to reveal our different cultures and ourselves over time and space.
