B.29 (Three Nights In)

1979
Country: UK
Duration: 23 mins
Colour: B&W
Available Format/s: DVD / Digibeta tape / SD Digital file
Original Format: SD video

Using a similar monologue-to-camera approach as in works like Lenny’s Documentary (1978), B.29 features the verbal ramblings of Phil (played by Bourn ), a bit of a “stay at home” who is spending his evenings constructing a model kit of a Flying Fortress bomber.

As the kit is slowly assembled Phil recounts failed relationships and his dealings with workmates at the bandage factory. The building of the kit becomes a metaphor for his attempts to rebuild a shattered ego.

Revenge is in the air and Phil is a time bomb waiting to go off.
