The Midway

The Midway

| 1 min

Children wait their turn for a once-in-a-lifetime roller coaster ride. A loving and poignant meditation on childhood and the passage of time.

Inspired by found sound of a theme park in the distance, lyrically rendered in pencil and paper, and produced as part of the 10th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship.

    It appears these children were deceived into a pleasant experience to end up in a trap of evil. Why can't the plot includes a smart one inching his way back to the origin to warn those waiting in line a trap is awaiting them?
