Going home - from west to east; return. Part of a series of turning points. Recording a journal in color language; shadows of faces. Realities and memories come out frame by frame. The rhythm of a summer vacation. Rituals of light to dark - manifesting form.
This is a translation of old friends and old places. A ticket home.
"This film journal assembles the memory-charged visual fragments of a cross country trip to the filmmaker's home. He calls it 'a respectful portrait of old friends and old places' but tension-filled images combined with the rambling chant and urban ambience of its soundtrack indicates that a more anxious attitude, perhaps towards a fleeting present, underlies this personal document and 'ticket home.'" - Lynn Corcoran, Media Study, Buffalo
"Snippets of sun-soaked home movie footage jumbled around kinetically becomes a wild whorl of color and motion that's like watching the spin cycle in a washing machine. Dominic Angerame with this film gives you the distinct impression that someone's handing to you their childhood memories on a silver platter." - Frank Young, The Tallahassee Flambeau
