Day After Day

Canada, 1962 (MIFF 1963, People)

Director: Hugbert Aquin, Fernand Dansereau, Victor Jobin

Day after Day gives us the monotonous routine in a small paper-mill town - a routine geared to the factory, and through skillful photography this machine world asserts a brutal dominance. By contrast the commentary achieves a certain lyricism, using word associations and fragments of thoughts running through the minds of the workers to create an introspective mood.
