Atlantis Unbound

Montana Premiere

Loosely contrived from Francis Bacon’s utopian novel, New Atlantis, Sir Francis Galton furiously writes letters to his cousin Charles Darwin in his pursuit to discover the truth about hereditary traits. Through the metamorphosis of images, myth and history are interwoven by the act of drawing and erasing. Each charcoal drawing is erased and redrawn, filmed frame by frame.
