9 0'clock cannon

Ruben Guzman

1990, 12:00 minutes, Colour, English


"certainly an anachronism, every night at 9 pm since 1894 the gun delivers its blast to the city of vancouver.
from its cage, like a wild predator, aims at its prey with futility. history and anedotes colour this 12 minute
video on the cannon.
a reminder that behind each gun lies romance and militarism. "
