After his girlfriend leaves him, Ross McElwee takes a voyage along the original route taken by General William Sherman - but rather than cutting a swath of destruction designed for force the Confederate South into submission, as Sherman did, McElwee searches for love, camera in hand, "training his lens with phallic resolve on every accessible woman he meets" (Chicago Readers Circle). The Library of Congress National Film Registry recently chose "Sherman's March" for preservation as a "historically significant American motion picture." It has won documentary awards at numerous film festivals including Sundance, has been cited by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and chosen as "One of the Top 20 Documentaries of All-Time" by the International Documentary Association.
