A layered tapestry of trains and underwater footage exploring the realms of fear death and transience, this film places the traces of human voices amidst the flickering light and shadows of empty passenger cars.
This film Stems from a train trip from one end of Canada to the other and back again, and the loss of a friend in a drowning accident. 15 days of train travel from Vancouver to Halifax and back again (1200 km in total). This film is one of the meditations resulting from that trip. A "Fallen Flag" is the railroad term given to a discontinued rail line.Written by
