Conversations in isolation

Douglas Scholes & Jaden Scholes / 2021 / 20 min. / Canada / ENGLISH / SUBS FRENCH, ENGLISH

Synopsis

Conversations in isolation is a contemplative banter, with silent reflection, a working through of boredom, chores, plans and questions, by way of the banal, the mundane and the ordinary. Time passes. Exchanges between a father and son, reflecting on nothing and everything. A short film captured within the 'Great Pause' of spring 2020, echoes the ubiquitous character of conversations that unfold when life’s busy-ness falls away.
