Director Isaac Julien CBE returns to The Look for his incredible ‘Lessons of the hour – Frederick Douglass’

Shot on 35mm and Alexa, we worked closely with Isaac and Nina again to deliver this stunning 10 multiscreen 3.2K work.  The film opened at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY in March 2019

Lessons of the Hour is a poetic meditation on the life and times of Frederick Douglass, the ten-screen film installation proposes a contemplative journey into Douglass’ zeitgeist and its relationship to contemporaneity. The film includes excerpts of Douglass’ most arresting speeches and allusions to his private and public milieus.
