Free to Amherst Cinema Members!
After Jordan Lord’s father gets fired from his job as a debt collector, the artist follows their family over the term of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Set within domestic scenes in their Mississippi home, Lord’s documentary incorporates open captioning and audio descriptions to portray multiple viewpoints on shared financial and emotional debts and promises, reframing ethical questions about what is owed in consent and contracts.
Please note that the utilized captioning is displayed on-screen instead of via our captioning devices, and audio descriptions are played in the house mix for all to hear.
