An Incomplete History of the Travelogue, 1925

9.5 minutes | 2012 I 16mm
 

An Incomplete History of the Travelogue, 1925 subverts the form of the amateur ethnography to reflect upon our cultural anxiety around race, evolution, and civilization. This lyrical essay film captures the spirit of excess embodied by The Great Gatsby (published in 1925) in fragments from the home movies of an anonymous American family on a "Grand Tour" of Europe and North Africa.
