Cabin Field (2005) DVD

from 10.00

This experimental documentary explores the site of Cabin Field, a mile-long stretch of agricultural land in Crisp County, Georgia. Through the memories of land owners, farmers, residents and agricultural laborers past and present, Cabin Field examines evidence both visible and submerged, material and ephemeral. Physical evidence of Native American inhabitance, the economic structure of sharecropping and the mechanization of agriculture combine with fading memories; scientific and agricultural surveys reveal old home sites and the changing contours of cabin field; and archival film images of rural Georgia emerge as fragments of evidence to comment on our understanding of race, gender and the construction of place.
