Each One A Soul

The Battle of Bennington took place on August 16, 1777, a small but significant Revolutionary War skirmish on the border of New York and Vermont.

Battlefield sites are preserved to connect us with the past, but what has been learned? Does the land carry the memory of a battle the way a body carries trauma? Can it be used to heal? Using imagery of the site and text based on the battle's history, filmmaker-artists EveNSteve invite the viewer to investigate and reimagine the battlefield as a place of ritual, healing and rebirth.

EveNSteve is the husband and wife team of author Eve O. Schaub and artist Stephen Schaub. As a Marine Gulf War Veteran, and recipient of the Navy Achievement Medal, Stephen Schaub brings to this work a particular lived experience. 2021 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the First Gulf War. This milestone represents a pivotal moment in Schaub's desire to grapple with the meaning of his own experience of both honor and trauma, through the frame of history and art.
