SLOW REVOLUTION

“An impressive work…a magnum opus.”

                                                 –Independent Feature Project, New York 2019

A film by Rustin Thompson

A globe-trotting cameraman sends letters, postcards and videos from his more than 38 years of travel to his former colleague and lover. She shares them with us in an intimate voice-over, as he reflects on his experiences and reframes them for a present in which democratic instability, climate catastrophe, capitalism, and runaway technology threatens the future of the planet. Despite a sense of hopelessness, everywhere he “sees images for a film I can make.” His restless need to document humanity is his own personal form of resistance.
