The Reversal

2020 | Directed by Jennifer Boles

At the turn of the 19th century, the city of Chicago razed a continental divide and reversed its namesake river in the name of progress, forever linking it to the Illinois and Mississippi watersheds.

The Reversal animates thousands of archival photographs with an original soundscape composition to experience the formation of our contemporary planetary crisis through the invisible infrastructural history of an urban river.
