In 2009 Harvey Loves Harvey finished work on a documentary based on Ross McElwee’s award-winning 1986 film Sherman’s March. This project, titled After Sherman’s March begins:
“Sometimes I drink a little too much, and I order stuff on Amazon. Packages arrive and I don’t know what they are. This one, it seems, is a film I watched with my friend Jason a few months back. We never finished it… but it stuck with me.”
What follows is a meditation on friendship, 9/11 and the 2008 election, the Civil War, and how hard it can be to try to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Filmed in Boston, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Georgia, After Sherman’s March is one of the most ambitious projects we’ve ever undertaken.
