Trace the Line — part verité, part direct cinema — depicts the lives of two American artists during the tumultuous year of 2020.
Asa, an African American poet, wrestles with the purpose of his life as a young Black man in a divided nation. Eva, a white painter, is confronted with her privilege in a society she no longer understands.
Both artists struggle with the onset of the political upheaval, and social unrest — living in a state that has been ground zero for both. While the nation seeks to understand the events of 2020, Asa and Eva independently confront who they are.
As the tension increases across the country, their art deepens in the midst of uncertainty. Trace the Line draws attention to our common connections and how these connections can forge a new path for us all.
