Storyline

What has the ability to be everywhere, or at many places at once? What can exist simultaneously inside and outside the social mechanisms of urban life? Phantom Couriers: Ghost in the Machine works on several interpretive layers, superimposing beautiful film images, a genuine narrative and a subculture that many feel curious about, but few are able to penetrate. This documentary short film tells the story of Phantom Couriers, Vancouver's longest-running independent courier company. Mark Huggan--owner, dispatcher, storyteller extraordinaire--relates how he started the company, and how he continues to retain both his couriers, and his clients. Bike messengers Brandon, Sarah and Dan describe the fast-paced world of being a courier in Vancouver in this intimate and swift portrait. Written by Gregory Gan
