All Light, Everywhere
A kaleidoscopic essay, the film covers the long historical timeline of how and when cameras became weapons. Drawing fascinating, frequently surprising connections between disparate subjects and ideas, All Light, Everywhere is grounded in Baltimore, depicting the communities most significantly affected by the more insidious applications of these technologies. The filmmaker’s own relation to his camera is also pondered via the complexity of an "objective" point of view. The film provides an insightful exploration into the shared histories of cameras, weapons, policing and justice.
