Experiencing Interruptions?

Promise to never go suddenly silent, little radio box

A short film about the fall of types of media which once reshaped social life; momentarily elevated to the apex of technology and human adaptability, and eventually replaced by the constant sophistication of the machine. The degradation of a magnetic video tape is driven by the reverberation of voices that, when echoing through radio waves, worship defeated myths – the power of old lighting poles that fight against expiration, a scared away titan that will soon become scrap.
