Lines Of Oblivion

Aubrey L. Glazer

1992, 09:54 minutes, B&W, Spanish, Hebrew with English subtitles


A country prompting its citizens into a reaffirmation of their origins, tends to reinforce a reliance upon Judeo-Christian structures. These permeate every aspect of public and private life, within Canada and without. The notion of the nation originates with the city, its language. Lines of Oblivion poses Toronto as the mirror-site of New York. The structural image-music-text struggle that ensues, resolves into a rapidly enveloping Babel of Bureaucracy; as the mass and its malaise multiply, the power of the page, Modernity's frame, time and time again institutionalizes an immobilization from within.
