New World (trailer) (2016)

In this experimental Western the poetic meets prosaic via a Victorian travel report written for the purposes of emigration to Texas. An abstract frontier thesis where Western movie tropes and mythologised geographies are navigated through printed matter, race theories, and observations of pioneering life.
