The Republic , the never-before-seen visionary new feature film by emerging artist James N. Kienitz Wilkins and frequent collaborator, writer Robin Schavoir, is an epic story about a group of American libertarians told in an utterly unique way.

As the drama unfolds, the image slowly transitions from pure black to blinding white throughout the duration of the film, defying the boundaries of screen size and resolution.
