Seeing in the Rain (10 min., 1981, Canada)
Photographed through the windshield of a Vancouver city bus and edited according to the rhythms
of the bus' windshield wiper, the film transforms the linear “narrative” of the bus ride into a temporal construction that can be described as cubist. The effect of the cutting strategy on the actual temporal organization of the film is as remarkable as its effect on our sense of time.
