One last trip down the rabbit hole before it gets paved over. A deep geography. What is above and what is below. What came before and what will come after. Agrarian fantasies, sacrificial rites, and excavations.

Vivid, impressionistic documentary about the state of Georgia takes an unconventional, almost avant-garde look at its history in a lyrical, poetic manner akin to Terrence Malick. Beautifully filmed and lovingly realized, GENERAL ORDERS NO. 9 is an elegiac ode to a man's home state, longing for what it once was, and dreaming of what it could be.
A contemplative... Documentary? If it is possible! A meditative dream on the concept of land and nation. A beautiful poem with a distinctly american voice. If Contemplative cinema is your scoop you will find what you're looking for.
