The Sea Is History

Louis Henderson

A materialist and animist critique of European colonial history, reading the past as something entangled within the present, made up of living and dead elements. The Sea is History, made in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, is a free adaptation of the poem by Derek Walcott.
