Film Still from Exit

Sharon Lockhart, HD, color, 40 min. (2008)

Like the Lumière brothers before her, Lockhart steps outside the factory in order to film her lyrical companion piece to Lunch Break. Structured around five separate takes filmed across the work week, Exit captures the temporal and physical “shift” from labor to rest of workers exiting the iron works and observes the subtle differences and symmetries that sustain the rhythm of factory labor.
