In Order Not to Be Here

Deborah Stratman's palpably creepy 2002 short opens with a police arrest caught by an aerial infrared camera and closes with a bravura sequence, also filmed overhead, of a man running from what appears to be a crime scene. In between are eerie nocturnal shots of malls, gas stations, and gated communities, the tranquillity disrupted now and then by police dispatches, burglar alarms, and distant sirens on the sound track. Stratman holds each tableau just long enough to convey the mood of false security; Kevin Drumm contributed the portentous electronic sounds. 33 min.
