"A reconsideration of the photographic work of Lorna and Laurence Marshall in the Kalahari Desert, Namibia. Using footage, images and text from The Marshall Collection at Harvard University’s Peabody Museum, this film raises questions about the politics of their visual archive and photographic encounters from the reparative perspective of its formerly silenced stories."
