Night Work: Last Question of the Evening


 Illustration: Finn Harvor, from "Last Question of the Evening"



(Below is an excerpt and link to a short story about working for low wages in a call centre. The link takes you to the story, and also to an authorial movie I built around it.)


Fade in.
An office comprised of cubicles, all of them lined in rows, as if the aisles of an airplane had been converted into office space. In each cubicle, a worker with a headset.

"They're all liars," a voice through one headset says.

The man conducting the interview, Anders, doesn't reply. He waits for the respondent to answer the question in the survey.

"Eh?" the respondent says, his voice charged with a coercive energy. "Whaddayou think?"

PeaceWalk

Find peace even in dangerous times.

(New cut of a project that is part video experiment, and part tonal drama.)

Il y a un symbolisme à la musique et un symbolisme des images de cette vidéo.. La première séquence se trouve à Ottawa, près du canal Rideau, où mon frère et moi sommes allés à l'école secondaire. Dans un sens, c'était un endroit idyllique. Mais c'était aussi dangereux. Nous avons trop fait la fête. Mon frère a commencé à boire à ce moment-là.

Viennent ensuite les plans du bâtiment de la Défense nationale. Le Canada a participé à de nombreuses guerres (bien qu'il pense que ce n'est pas guerrier). C'est une question de notre identité nationale que nous n'avons pas encore complètement élucidée.

Viennent ensuite des photos du sentier pédestre près de chez nous. Aussi un endroit agréable. Mais aussi - parce que nous vivons en Corée du Sud - un endroit où le danger est proche, sous la forme d'un conflit armé possible.

Pourtant, la beauté naturelle de la région continue. En boucle, mon frère aurait aimé cette zone s'il avait pu la voir.

There is a symbolism to the music and imagery of this video. The initial footage is in Ottawa, near the Rideau Canal, where my brother and I went to high school. In a sense, it was an idyllic place. But it was also dangerous. We partied too much. My brother started to drink at this time. 

Next are shots of the National Defence Building. Canada has participated in many wars (although it thinks it is not warlike). This is an issue of our national identity we have not quite worked out.

Next are shots of the walking trail near where we live. Also a nice place. But also -- because we live in South Korea -- a place where danger is nearby, in the form of possible armed conflict. 

Yet the natural beauty of the area continues. Coming full circle, my brother would have liked this area if he had been able to see it.

C'è un simbolismo alla musica e un simbolismo delle immagini in questo video. Il filmato iniziale è a Ottawa, vicino al Canale di Rideau, dove mio fratello e io siamo andati in liceo. In un certo senso, era un luogo idilliaco. Ma era anche pericoloso. Ci siamo partiti troppo. Mio fratello ha cominciato a bere in questo momento.

Quindi sono riprese del Palazzo Nazionale della Difesa. Il Canada ha partecipato a molte guerre (anche se pensa che non sia guerra). Questa è una questione della nostra identità nazionale che non abbiamo abbastanza elaborato.

Quindi sono riprese del percorso a piedi vicino a dove viviamo. Anche un bel posto. Ma anche - perché viviamo in Corea del Sud - un luogo in cui il pericolo è nelle vicinanze, sotto forma di possibili conflitti armati.


Eppure la bellezza naturale della zona continua. Venendo a cerchio pieno, mio fratello avrebbe voluto questa zona se fosse stato in grado di vederlo.
