From Fish to Moon

13m Documentary 2022

A small supermarket somewhere in the Florida backwoods. The staff come in early, drink coffee and restock the shelves. They chat about the air conditioning, would like to read poetry in peace and sometimes even get lucky on the slot machine. Throughout this experimental documentary short, a Pahokee Florida supermarket amid the hum of late capitalism reveals its community history.
