CGiii Comment

A very sombre piece...but, it is utterly intriguing.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

Explores Confucius's observation that 'The way out is via the door.' Archival footage of people from the 1930s and 1940s mixes with odd stories told by a narrator's voice: the stories take us into the Mohave Desert, into the locker room of frolicking boys (with a pitch for the salubrious effects of goosing), and into storms with a man who drives with his dog into the center of whatever bad weather is within miles. What is understood? What is decoded?
