MOVIE TRAILER: General Orders No. 9

We know documentaries aren’t for everyone, but this is a film we think anyone can find beautiful. First time writer-director Bob Persons is about to tell you a story unlike any you’ve heard before, yet it is entirely factual and for some of us, based in our country. Due out later this year, look below for the trailer and plot outline of General Orders No. 9

PLOT: Awarded for its visionary cinematography, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 breaks from the constraints of the documentary form as it contemplates the signs of loss and change in the American South. The stunning culmination of over eleven years’ work from first time writer-director Bob Persons, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 marries experimental filmmaking with an accessible, naturalist sensibility to tell the epic story of the clash between nature and man’s progress, and reaches a bittersweet reconciliation all its own. Told entirely with images, poetry, and music, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 is unlike any film you have ever seen. A story told in maps, dreams, and prayers, it is one last trip down the rabbit hole before it’s paved over.
