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.
The LANDSPLOITATION Podcast hosts experimental video and audio documenting the social experience of the human landscape, including but not limited to the spaces of the built environment, vernacular architecture, proxemics, human interaction, and political boundaries.
Submissions from independent scholars, photographers, and filmmakers are welcome. To submit, please insure that sound or video is hosted on a public server (such as archive.org) and email the link together with a brief description of your piece to landscapestudies (at) gmail (dot) com.
