DAT LIKWID LAND by Jacob Dwyer


As a quest to identify a man whose notebook we discovered in a bus station leads us through a city, we move from cemeteries to Cypress swamps. The mans name is Ignatius and with the words of this self proclaimed outsider as our agent we too can approach subjects from elsewhere. The film was shot in New Orleans and grew out of an exploration into the relationship between John Kennedy Toole and the main character of his novel, A Confederacy of Dunces; a work that only gained acclaim after the authors suicide. DAT LIKWID LAND investigates the creation of a fictional outsider as an attempt to disrupt ones casual cosmos and the municipality of meanings.
