A film that works in two layers. The repeated sequences and sounds become entangled in a telephone narrative that refers to physical and industrial work.
Morgan Quaintance often works with narratives both personal and historical, direct and raw. Through his work, he shares memories of his youth and explores connections between race and class, using perfectly timed montage, music and text to deliver gut punches. In Repetitions, he continues to use his colourful typography, weaving together materials from multiple sources (found and archival material) and creates a space that is both abstract — based on repetitive patterns, juxtaposed textures — and non-fiction, with text and sound used as anchors in considerations of labour and working class vulnerability.
