Dark Trees (2018)

"Doom! Doom! Doom! Something seems to whisper it in the very dark trees of America. Doom! Doom of what? Doom of our white day." D. H. Lawrence (1923). Studies in Classic American Literature, Herman Melville’s Moby Dick (p.146). New York, NY: Cambridge University Press.

This project was filmed on location of the former Grand Rapids Christian High School (1931-1972) and Kent County Social Services Department (1973-2009), and explores the complex and charged history of the site. This project was a collaboration between artist Paul Amenta, SideCar Studios (Josh Tyron & Raleigh Chadderdon), and actor Joe Anderson.
