Strike and Rebound

In the early part of the 20th century, acclaimed documentary photographer and sociologist Lewis Hine traveled to different American cities in order to make pictures of people living and working under difficult conditions. As two women discuss these images, we eavesdrop on their conversation about photography and poverty. We never see the source of the questions and answers, instead their voices are juxtaposed against a 16mm educational animation illustrating geometric inequalities, in this case, the difference between a carom and a reflection.
