The Arc of Oblivion

What do we talk about when we talk about archives? Pretty much everything! At least, that’s the case in THE ARC OF OBLIVION, Ian Cheney‘s profoundly inquisitive, intellectually far-roaming exploration of memory, record-keeping and humanity’s never-ending quest for relevance and meaning in a world where everything is constantly slipping away.

The filmmaker (THE MOST UNKNOWN, THE CITY DARK, THE SEARCH FOR GENERAL TSO) takes a discursive path through multiple topics and places—from salt mines to fjords—all the while constructing an actual ark in a field in Maine. Fans of executive producer Werner Herzog‘s nonfiction jaunts will find a kindred spirit here.

Director: Ian Cheney
Cast: Werner Herzog, Kirsten Johnson
Runtime: 98
