ABOUT

Along the James River in Richmond, Virginia, impressions of a buried world emerge beneath monuments on the surface, questioning how the past is recorded or suppressed.

Directed by Sara Suarez

Watermarks is a portrait of Richmond, Virginia. Where Confederate monuments adorn the land, the traumatic history of slavery along the James River remains largely unrecorded. As a narrator offers to guide us through contemporary landscapes, impressions of this buried world emerge through hand-developed 16mm film and unconventional sound design, questioning how the past is recorded or suppressed.
