A documentary film by Laura Conway
A collaged essay film that tells an emotional history of socialism in the United States. Filmmaker Laura Conway enacts a cinematic seance using archival documents to communicate with her departed communist grandparents and ask them questions about the end of capitalism. An account of the dreams, struggles, and losses of revolutionaries in the United States. At its heart is the question - how can we imagine an alternative to capitalism?
The Length of Day premiered at the 2021 Slamdance Festival in the documentary shorts category.
