Untitled (Watts – Price/Frye gestures towards the Uprising) is a film conceived to ponder images of the 1965 Watts Rebellion and the scenario of the arrest of Marquette Frye and Rena Price - the catalyst for the Rebellion, the pantomime of the encounter - as well as images of present-day landscape of Watts, Los Angeles, West Coconut Grove and Liberty City, Florida. Images of the 6-day Uprising centered in Watts were broadcast widely and became a clarion call for resistance and solidarity, heard across many cities in the United States and the world.  The film considers the dialogue between sites and landscape shaped by a common view on history and power structures.Through footages of walks and drives, the film depicts the landscape of Los Angeles and Miami as scenes within a larger narrative of criticality of place. Expanding on artist Adler Guerrier's photographic work engaging the flaneur and a series of videos that trace movement through the cityscape, this new film continues a conversation on the poetics of place and the resonances of history, taking on a new subject and geography.
