Direction: Hope Tucker
Light the fire and I’ll show you fear in a handful of dust.
Light the fire and I’ll show you something
Something invisible if you don’t care to see it
Something which cannot be heard if you don't care to listen to its breath Light the fire and I’ll show you fear in a handful of dust.
As director of The Obituary Project, a compendium of experimental salvage ethnography that transforms a quotidian narrative form, Hope Tucker (1974, USA) reframes the passing of sites, people, communities, rituals, cultural markers, and ways of being.
