In July 1971, avant-garde writer and language poet Bernadette Mayer produced Memory, a multimedia project in which she shot one roll of 35mm film each day and kept a daily journal. In honor of the project’s compilation and release as a book, Lynne Sachs embarks on a study of the memory and language of place.
Journeying to Mayer’s childhood home in a Queens neighborhood of New York City, Sachs pays homage to Mayer in a collage of architecture, light, and rhythm.
