Sam Amidon: "Saro"

This episode comes courtesy of Jeremy Blatter, a member of the Landscape Posse, former intern at the Prelinger Archive, and graduate student in the History of Science department at Harvard. Landsploitation is proud to present "Saro," a vernacular film tribute to westward migration, set to music by Sam Amidon. In "Saro," love for the woman left behind in the old world blends with nostalgia for a remembered landscape from home, both starkly contrasted against the changing, harsh reality of the American West.

Landsploitation: Cosmology

"It has come time to talk about the very small and the very large; streetscape, townscape, highways, continents and oceans. It is time to talk about vision." "Cosmology" explores the relationships between the traveler and social gravitation, handling the connections between vision and movement in ordinary journeys. It is presented as the first episode of the LANDSPLOITATION podcast of experimental short films about landscape.
