Birthmarks is an experimental non-fiction film about how Bill Lowe got beat up by the Newark Police during the riots in 1967, and how he spent much of his life telling the tale to his daughter. Using archival footage, interviews, video, 16mm film, performances and writing by Bill and Naima Lowe, this film is about how fathers and daughters make beauty out of trauma and art out of living.
