COLLODION: THE PROCESS OF PRESERVATION

Through the lens of photographer and doctor Eric Overton, Collodion: The Process of Preservation captures a fearless and unusually vulnerable self-portrait of the American wilderness, our relationship with one another, and the possibility that nature itself is all we need to be on the ground together . After a series of conversations and interviews, the film asks the question: "What happens when we only have one photo left?" It is a reminder of the fragility of art, nature and the need to ask us questions. Collodion ends when Overton's son begins photographing landscapes with an innate sense of wonder and exploration. This is the heart of the film. Here self-discovery becomes a legacy. It is a transformation not of political achievements or battles won (though they must be fought), but rather an achievement of what the wilderness offers so effortlessly: simplicity, connection, curiosity and presence.
