Lunch Break

Lunch Break

Lunch Break, Dir, Sharon Lockhart, 2008, USA, 84 mins


American filmmaker and photographer, whose work, with it’s near static, steady gaze and stillness, hovers between still and moving image.


A slowed down single tracking shot along a corridor as workers at the Bath Iron Works, (Maine, USA) take their lunch break.


It’s a slowing down so as to pay better attention. It’s film as an excavation of detail that we ourselves could never hope to capture from a transitory, fleeting moment.

Below is an online link which you can use for reference. To see the film in its original glory, check with the distributor of the film for their terms and conditions.
