A therapeutic exhale that documents growing up black in Austin, Texas. A love letter to cultural landmarks that have been erased from the city's consciousness, Chronicles also exposes the city's dark past. Photographer Ivan Miller's black-and-white images establish a striking visual environment, and Miller's longtime musical collaborator Thomas "Hitman" Wheeler on percussion creates a funky sonic landscape. Together with Miller's masterful storytelling, they make a three-dimensional theatrical experience. Presented with ZM3ProductionsLive.
