Abstract
In this footage, JoAnn Elam focuses on a group of African American men picking up a tire, working the land, and taking care of animals on a farm. At the end, a woman who addresses Elam behind the camera is folding the laundry left to dry outside. As in many other elements in this collection, Elam might have been interested in filming farm labor and in exploring gender roles within this family or social group. Without further evidence, however, Elam’s intentions remain unclear. The date and location are unknown.
