Royal Road, The
directed by Jenni Olson
As if cast as the antihero in one’s own memoir, renowned queer cineaste Jenni Olson narrates a visually pleasing dialectic between the past and the telling of the past—in other words, moviemaking. Olson’s extensive knowledge of film, passionately manifest in references to works like SUNSET BOULEVARD and VERTIGO, informs a provocative interplay between her longed-for romantic connections and the brutal colonization of California. Static-scapes on true celluloid, beautifully lit and composed, “landmark” what could be called “a history of the past.”
