Most documentary films send a message to their audience. However, there is nothing in this film resembling such a message, only “image” and “expression.” A child on a gravel road, a woman firing a gun, a dancing woman—no individual meaning is to be found. Images like a deluge of evening lights reflected by a speeding car, the geometric beauty of a row of posts and light dancing on the surface of water merely appear before the viewer. This work, comprized of six episodes, is made on digital video, a medium differing greatly from film.
