Brethren, is Annette's a poetic film honoring the words and legacy of Frederick Douglass on the 200th anniversary of his birth. Brethren re-interprets Douglass' first Newspaper, The NorthStar's headline motto, "Right is of NO Sex, Truth is of NO Color, God is the Father of us All and We are all Brethren" for a 21st century audience.
The #FrederickDouglassExperiment is an interactive web-based sound-walk where visitors can experience the intimate act of listening in 6 various site-specific locations, an original audio walking album Annette developed connecting the 21st century to Frederick Douglass' 19th century Rochester.
When the weather is amenable visitors are encouraged to take their digital devices and a pair of headphones and use the FrederickDouglassExperiment as an exploration tool within Douglass' Rochester.
