Documentary, Belgium/USA Director: Sofie Benoot
Blue Meridian is a journey along the Mississippi River that not only crosses the deep south, but the imagination of North America. Representing the complex relationship between place and identity, this film reveals a story of national identity undergoing radical transformation. The river both joins and separates people as well as real and imaginary places. Southern identity is tightly connected with the notion of home, and Blue Meridian seeks to discover what is left of that notion today.
