What Is A Line?

Shari Frilot

1994, 10:00 minutes, colour, English


A dark comedy about an angry, recently uncoupled lesbian who simultaneously rides a train and an emotional roller-coaster as she mulls over the details of her breakup. The tape weaves the narrative of the jilted lover with footage of a train in motion in ways that illustrate that the mechanics of physical and psychological progression are not always linear.
