Reason for Submission:
It was our goal to tell the all-too-familiar story of the JFK assassination in a way never before seen by audiences. Our documentary is 100% archive, an intricate tapestry of images and sounds woven together to create an experiential and evocative story that renders the familiar new and fully engaging. It is our hope that the presentation of archive transports viewers and immerses them in a chaotic and terrifying moment that changed the world. Without a narrator, we place the awesome burden of storytelling squarely on the archive, trusting and honoring the power of these images to tell the story.
