Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property

I like how this gets at the process of history, the struggle of finding what really happened with sources that are few and flawed. The variety of interviews and opinions expressed is neat. Especially I liked when all of a sudden there's a camera trained on the cameras, sort of like in Agnes Varda's second Gleaners picture, and Burnett talks about trying to make this as a presentation of how others have interpreted or reimagined Turner, and the struggle to not create yet another interpretation with this short film.
