Fracture
Canada / 10:00 / 1973 / silent / colour
"Variously relaxed, apprehensive, or relieved, the fractured gestures of a woman and a baby are played backward and forward, frame by frame, like a musical phrase." -Ian Birnie

"'Fracture' presents the viewer with a narrative riddle, one which isrelated directly to the nature of parallel construction ... The narrative construction (and I emphasize the latter word) is comprised of 18 shots. These shots are, in fact, optical renditions of two primary shots or scenes which are the woman and child, and the male 'intruder' ... 'Fracture' successfully isolates and exploits basic cinematic codes and conventions, such as screen direction and open-frame composition, in the creation of an implied and poetic narrative." - Al Razutis
