Written by Alexis Clements | Directed by Mariah Larkin
Nobody knows Sydney Anders. So nobody paid much attention when Sydney’s seven boxes arrived at the Archives. Nobody, except for Sophie and Thea. Flipping through the pages of Sydney’s life in an idiosyncratic archive of lesbian lives, Sophie and Thea uncover the tragedies and celebrations of an unknown life, and along the way uncover unknown truths about each other and themselves.
Inspired by the 45 year-old Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brooklyn, NY, Unknown offers a portrait of a small community of lesbians that spans four generations, and it asks how we come to know a person as something more than the role they play in our lives or the labels society applies to them.
