Tug
(Higit)

by Jon LAZAM

Tug_03

Images in the black and white of old photographs, letters exchanged, the memory of a love affair between a schoolteacher and a clown. Between night and day, a house and a school, worksites in the middle of the street and preparations for a school play there emerges the bold composition (editing and framing gestures akin to silent cinema) of the first feature-length film by experimental filmmaker Jon Lazam. A seemingly banal daily life pierced by an immeasurable wound, the very substance of a sentimental story, an interplay of proximity and distance, a straightforward melodrama enveloped in a poignant night of sleep, or insomnia.
