16mm, b/w, 7 minutes, 1980
A cinematic essay depicting the quiet dismissal of those who are no longer able to keep up with the relentless pace of consumer society--the elderly. Using a multi-layered soundtrack and appropriating words from the world of advertising, the film subverts conventional image/sound relationships.
"...poignant, powerful scenes, tight editing...very good impact..."
