The Inhabitants

Milwaukee Film Festival

The film follows two fictional immigrant ancestors as they explore our subjective perceptions of a shared American past. Set in the late 19th Century, these inhabitants perform their required daily tasks while searching for each other and a greater meaning to their existence. The story is told through highly cinematic images with no dialogue and in settings ranging from a 18th Century mansion to a fire-scorched prairie, the enigmatic storylines of the two characters remain separate but interwoven.
