Interchange Melanie Shatzky, Brian M. Cassidy

Film index A to Z

A tangled freeway network sprawls above an unidentified industrial zone, somewhere between downtown and the suburbs. In the foreground, a little girl, indifferent to her environment, swings halfheartedly in a playground. Far, far away from Montreal’s charming old neighbourhoods, Interchange is a hybrid project combining film, photography, sociology and philosophy, taking an original look at something typically underrepresented in trendy films: the sun reflected on a phone booth, aging signs, the stoic face of a resident sitting on the sidewalk. By juxtaposing apparently banal elements, and observing them closely, Interchange subtly restores the emotional power of time to a present where movement is everything.
