In honor of the upcoming 10th anniversary of T/F (Super, Silver, and Lux passes on sale now!), we bring you a selection from T/F 2009. October Country is a beautifully rendered portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care and child abuse. A collaboration between filmmaker Michael Palmieri and photographer and family member Donal Mosher, this vibrant and penetrating documentary examines the forces that unsettle the working poor and the violence that lurks beneath the surface of American life.
"A film that seems to burrow under the psychic skin of its characters. Visually seductive and conceptually concise, it is otherworldly, haunted poetry."-- Scott Macauley, Filmmaker Magazine
