All Light, Everywhere

Theo Anthony
Watch
From police body worn video to pigeons equipped with cameras during World War One and used as a kind of proto-drone, All Light, Everywhere unfolds in a kaleidoscope of frightening and fascinating instances of the mania for surveillance, observation and the total documentation of everyone and everything. Turning to the machinery and capabilities of human vision and the history of technology, Theo Anthony makes police cameras the primary subject of his research. Following on from ideas developed by thinkers such as Jonathan Crary and Harun Farocki, which hold that machines have begun to ‘create’ things rather than simply displaying them, the director calls into question the reliability and sufficiency of what has been captured. Can an image that is fuzzy, often soundless, and distorted as a result of the specific optics used to create it be a justification for the use of violence? Or is it really a new means of power and control?

Born in 1989, based in Baltimore and upstate New York. Theo Anthony’s first feature documentary, Rat Film, premiered at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival. It has enjoyed critical acclaim, was nominated for the 2017 Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Documentary and received a theatrical release in the US. All Light, Everywhere, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2021, is Theo’s second feature film.
