CONCERNING THE WAY OF DESCRIBING PLACES
Documentary Short, 2019, HD Video, 14 mins
Director: Sean Hanley
In 1817, a surveyor's line was inscribed through Bergen County, New Jersey and became one of the foundational measurements in the mapping of the United States. The film retraces the line 200 years later and along the way considers the consequences of precision, place-naming, and viewing from a distance.
