In the tradition of An Injury to One, Wilkerson mixes genres in his unique agitprop exploration of places, economic systems, and injustice.  “Machine Gun or Writer?” which Wilkerson calls fiction, premiered at Locarno 2015 and was awarded Best International Feature at DokuFest (Kosovo). It has since screened worldwide and was recognized as one the finest films of the year on numerous lists including La Furia Umana and DesistFilm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"A love story, told as if retracing footsteps, the city mapped on psychogeographic lines. Travis Wilkerson’s Machine Gun or Typewriter? is at once a landscape essay film, a fractious collage piece and an abstract confessional, restlessly serving the film noir narrative trope of a missing woman. Wilkerson plays the radio man, seen only behind a pop screen and a Sennheiser mic, who tells stories about falling in and out of love with his partner, another would-be political reactionary. Each anecdote is tethered to a place, both physically — mapped out with pins and string on the man’s wall — and figuratively: the man’s fury at the injustices perpetrated at these landmarks wrests attention away from the woman who has gone missing. There’s a perverse solace he finds in re-visiting narratives of systemic racism, class divide and police brutality.” Conor Bateman, 4:3

 

“Confidently straddling forms as diverse as the essay film, agitprop, and noir, and themes as broadly different as Los Angeles, anarchism, and unrequited love, Wilkerson’s film is a wry, controlled, and witty engagement with how the historical and social both inform one man’s political maturation." Michael Pattison, Slant Magazine
