September 5:10pm

USA, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Experimental)

Director: Mitch McCabe

A powerful and innovative diary film, tracing, with delicate irony, the emotional aftermath of tragedy. The narrator is an answering machine. Pain, expressed through sympathy, is juxtaposed against video imagery accumulated on the long journey to acceptance. The simple, yet chilling climax is both a cryptic homage to home-video filmmaking, and a direct expression of personal suffering.
