Premiere screening at Southern Alberta Art Gallery
Lethbridge, AB, 7pm, 21 January 2016

A collaborative film, shot in July 2014 during a one-month residency at the University of Lethbridge's Gushul Studio with Trapdoor Artist Run Centre. It consists of twenty-three scenes, each written, performed and shot in one day, in selected locations throughout the Crowsnest Pass.

In the style of a collection of short stories, Erik and Josée scripted and performed a series of unrelated characters that were written in response on the settings of each shot. Unfolding chronologically over the course of one day, the scenes relate to one another through the geographical and cultural context. The narratives deal with the bodily experience of performing to the camera, an unclear relationship between documentary and fiction, and two-person dynamics.
