Surface Noise

Directed by Abigail Child
United States, 1999
Documentary, Avant-Garde, Short


In Surface Noise, sound and original footage are woven into a sonata form to explore public and private arenas. Child centers the film around work and issues of class: the divisions between home and public spaces, owners and workers, saturation and flow, structure and improvisation.
