A Film by Hamilton Y. Ward

Hamilton Young Ward is a photographer and videographer based in Charlotte. He has been working on a series of experimental films that illustrate folk tales his father told him over the years. Ward says this film is a “narrated recollection about the loss of an infant brother to a tragic farming accident and the spiritual mark that accident left on the land and on the family.

This film is an experimental exploration of Southern folklore using burned found footage.”
