Evidence

NTSC/4:3/TRT 8:23/Color/2001

In April of 1979, an apartment complex in the small town of Bushnell, Illinois, was vacated virtually overnight. Twenty-one years later, Morrow went into the building to find it untouched since the eviction. The effect is both eerie and then tranquil as one imagines who lived in these discarded homes, littered with Kiss records, gods-eyes, gold pumps, and Nancy Drew mysteries. The Antimatter Festival of Underground Short Film & Video’s programmers called Evidence a “film which implodes traditional narrative form and pushes the limits of the experimental genre through a range of singular techniques.” Although the apartment complex is certainly a time capsule of objects, the “evidence” of the title refers more to the ephemeral memories and experiences born within the spaces of the apartments.
