Three Domestic Interiors

The film portrays three people through their living room environments. These portraits push domestic order to the edge of collapse and loneliness. Only the telephone remains as a common link to the outside world, as the home becomes both sanctuary and prison. Using the wide angle properties of film and the close-up properties of video, the film explores the temporal and spatial relationship between the mediums of film and video. A film about loss.

"THREE DOMESTIC INTERIORS can be seen as a rethinking of portraiture. Three people, a young woman, an older woman and a young man are portrayed in their respective living rooms. The filmed portraits reveal still lives. Alone amid their possessions, they are isolated from any larger social context. Their connection to the outside world is through sounds that seep into their domestic space, from the street, the neighbors and via the telephone." - Kathy Geritz, Pacific Film Archive
