Available Format/s: 16mm / SD Digital file


Inspired by a lesson from Eric Satie , a film in the form of a street – Castro Street running by the Standard Oil Refinery in Richmond, California… switch engines on one side and refinery tanks, stacks and buildings on the other – the street and the film ending at a red lumber company. All visual and sound elements from the street, progressing from the beginning to the end of the street is black and white (secondary), and one is colour like male and female elements. The emergence of a long switch engineer shot (black and white solo) is to the film-maker the essential image of consciousness. – B.B.
