11 Parking Lots and One Gradual Sunset // 8.5 min / Super 16 / exp. doc.
Both beauty and destruction. Both homage and critique. Sincere insincerity amidst the concrete jungle.
"Nature here is vile and base. ... I see fornication and asphyxiation and choking and fighting for survival and growing and just rotting away ... It's a land that God, if he exists has - has created in anger. It's the only land where - where creation is unfinished yet. Taking a close look at - at what's around us there - there is some sort of a harmony..."
Filmed in Winnipeg, MB on November 11th, 2013 by Aaron Zeghers and Nigel Webber.
"Surface level parking lots are both eyesores and public safety hazards."
-Sam Katz [winnipeg mayor], during press release announcing tax breaks to surface level parking lot owners.
"Since when has the avant-garde begun looking towards postcards for inspiration? ... What's next Benning, twenty-five sunsets or eleven parking lots?"
-Clint Enns [multidisciplinary artist / provocateur]
"I like postcards."
-Jodie Mack [experimental animator]
