The Age We Are Living In is a film chapter realized as a dialogue between the Monument to the Four Moors and the history of Louis Till as narrated by Ezra Pound from his holding cell in Pisa where he witnessed Till's hanging. The film engages a typewriter and the delineation of a steel fence. This work draws additionally from an interview with William Demby as a meditation on migration and movement. This chapter was first presented accompanied by a live performance by Tatjana Lightbourn and Hanan Saafir which referenced the John Edgar Wideman book on the Louis Till files.
