Proof Of Delivery

Lynda Nakashima and Molly Barker

1988, 27:30 minutes, colour, English


The video focuses on career bicycle couriers, some of whom have been making deliveries for thirty years. They talk about their job and why they keep at it despite the tolls it takes. Messengers are normally glimpsed fleetingly. Proof Of Delivery lets them sit down and tell their story.
