The General Orders No. 9 Trailer has premiered. Robert Persons‘ General Orders No. 9 (2009) movie trailer stars William Davidson. General Orders No. 9 (2009)’s plot synopsis: “Awarded for its visionary cinematography, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 breaks from the constraints of the documentary form as it contemplates the signs of loss and change in the American South. The stunning culmination of over eleven years’ work from first time writer-director Bob Persons, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 marries experimental filmmaking with an accessible, naturalist sensibility to tell the epic story of the clash between nature and man’s progress, and reaches a bittersweet reconciliation all its own. Told entirely with images, poetry, and music, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 is unlike any film you have ever seen. A story told in maps, dreams, and prayers, it is one last trip down the rabbit hole before it’s paved over.”
When the viewer sees this they will immediately think of director Terrence Mallick, especially with the voice over by William Davidson spouting Mallick-like poetry. There is even a pullquote referencing the director at the beginning of this documentary trailer. This is a film “about the changing landscape of the American South – specifically as seen in Georgia — and it seems to be something a bit like Koyaanisqatsi passed through filters held by Malick and Emmanuel Lubezki.”
