What it means to be lost to history
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sam Green's name was immediately recognizable to me as the co-director of the feature documentary, The Weather Underground. That film felt stuck in history: heavy on reminiscences, but light on exploring the historical legacies we live with today. In Lot 63 Grave C, Green foregrounds the question of what it means to be lost to history.

The title of the short refers to the unmarked grave of Meredith Hunter, an 18-year old man who was murdered by Hell's Angels at the infamous Altamont rock concert in California. The Altamont murder is considered a metaphor for the "end" of Sixties idealism, but Hunter himself is lost to history. All that is known about Hunter is confined to the slow-motion footage of his murder, and a few newspaper articles Green captures ingeniously on fast-motion microfilm. The short manages to achieve what the The Weather Underground did not, asking what is lost when we only think of history in grand schemes.
