OLD LADY

Kelly O'Brien

TAPECODE 903.07

There is more tenderness packed in each frame of this mini-opus of amour than a shelf full of Titanics. Using a quick witted blend of voice-over, pop jams and super-8 signage, O'Brien stares unflinchingly at her 35 year old mirror, wondering aloud about cruelties gathered beneath the name of love. Inspiration arrives via grandmother Alice, who found happiness when a teen sweetheart picked up a fifty year old promise, and Charlotte, Alice's sister, who fell in love for the first time late in life. Lo-fi lonelyhearts from the denim princess of unhappiness, bent on smiling it all away in the end. (Mike Hoolboom)
