Set during the American Civil War, The Retrieval tells the story of three Afro-Americans and what they had to do in order to survive. This is a meticulously shot period drama that eschews battle scenes in favour of character development and is all the more powerful for it.

Thanks to Chris Eska


This is a remarkable little film, a marvel of American indie filmmaking and of stories typically overlooked. See it
