Carry On

Edgar Endress , Lori Lee

Carry On is a short film about the search for an illegal Haitian immigrant, using an abandoned backpack as the primary clue. Based on the filmmakers’ research of a hidden aspect of illegal immigration, the film references the process in which individuals arrive on U.S. shores in wet clothes, with dry clothes protected in a plastic bag. After making landfall, they exchange their wet clothes for dry, their old identity for new. In lush and poetic visual language, Carry On chronicles the search for “Eulysses,” a pseudonym for the bag’s owner, whose identity is constructed through the contents of the bag.
