The Illinois Parables

A beautiful piece on the hardships on a shared soil. Partially essayistic, casting a wide narrative net (which did suffer a bit under my ignorance of Illinois’ history), and patrially poetic, with the associative nature of the parables as well as the juxtaposition within the montage bringing depth to whatever we’re seeing. Loved the newspaper clippings in the way they were shown, showing period through design. Need to watch again for better comprehension, though.
