Alice and Martha
Alice and Martha (in collaboration with Natasha McHardy)
Alice and Martha earn their living at a tedious delivery job. As you follow them through their day, against the backdrop of a generic city [Vancouver], Martha monopolizes the conversation with her nostalgic memories of the old country, her disenchantment of modern-day life, and her dreams of escape. Alice’s pent up anxieties and emotions translate into anger as she is forced to respond to Martha’s antics. She wonders if she’ll be able to keep it together in the presence of her overbearing companion whose observations force her to question such a mundane existence. To what lengths will they go in escaping their repetitive daily lives?
