Set in Baltimore—a city that has long been a testing ground for new policing technologies—All Light, Everywhere explores our personal and philosophical relationships with cameras and weaponry. Beginning with the rise of police body cameras, Director Theo Anthony paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of our shared histories of photographic devices, weapons, policing and justice. The film charts a course from the 19th century—when the nascent art of photography went hand in hand with colonial projects and the development of automatic weapons—to the present-day headquarters of Axon, a company with a virtual monopoly on body cameras in the US. Verité, performance and archival research are all employed in this self-reflexive work, which encompasses both the ambiguous and the sublime.
