Summary
General Orders No. 9 breaks from the constraints of the documentary form as it contemplates the signs of loss and change in the American South. Robert Persons' directorial debut, General Orders No. 9, exists as a breathtakingly poetic meditation on the state of Georgia and its cultural, moral and geographical birthright, rendered through the rapt contemplation of historical maps, architectural artifacts, lyrical narration and exquisite landscape cinematography. In synthesizing a mixture of imagery and iconography vital to reconciling the cultural and territorial identity of Georgia, and by proxy the entire American South, Persons traces a spellbinding genealogy that is both uniquely American and unforgettable
