Abstract

"Straddling the line between photography and cinema, Interchange is a near-wordless observational depiction of life alongside a stark and imposing Montreal highway. Interchange weaves portraits, landscapes, architecture and objects in its reflection on the city’s inhabitants, its traffic jams, the shipping of commercial goods and the nature of time itself. The highway portrayed in Interchange is less the subject of the film than its organizing structure: a large concrete heart, whose arteries intersect with the landscape and its residents in often startling ways, and serve as the framework for an extended meditation on the individual and their surroundings in the post-industrial age."-- Publisher's website (http://pigeonprojects.com/html/interchange.html)
