Kudzu

In Georgia, the legend says
That you must close your windows
At night to keep it out of the house.
The glass is tinged with green, even so,
As the tendrils crawl over the fields.
-James Dickey

A young woman returns to her Georgia home for the last time and is confronted by a particularly invasive strand of Kudzu that forces her to reckon with her past. Using hand-painted 16mm film and VHS video, Kudzu tells the story of overgrown towns and the forces that push residents out.
