My interest is in the time/space relation-ships involved in film duration with particular reference to editing conventions used in narrative cinema.

Two separate events are edited together, the action intimates they are taking place at the same time and within the same spatial relationship to one another. However the film goes on to contradict this illusion by showing that the two events have been shot as one continuous take.

The soundtrack is taken from an old movie on television which is incorporated into the action, it has a duration of its own, sometimes reinforcing the picture illusion and sometimes creating its own space.
