Americæ is an exploration of the work of XVI Belgian engraver Theodor de Bry who made some of the earliest images of the Americas without ever going there. This film will explore published images and public monuments as history-writing agents and their role creating the idea of the Other. “Who has the power, in what channels, to circulate which meanings to whom? (...) the issue of power can never be bracketed out from the question of representation.” — Stuart Hall
