Lay Down Tracks

Danielle Lombardi and Brigid McCaffrey used a 16-millimeter Bolex and nonsynchronous sound to make this spare, pensive travel film about five professional loners: a carny, a female trucker, a troubleshooting railroad executive, a chimney sweep who spends his leisure time surfing, and a nun who's also the country's first female riverboat pilot. The voice-over interviews play like interior monologues as the subjects explain how their lives were shaped by their career choices (and vice versa) and wonder how others perceive them. If every journey is a process of self-discovery, these five globe-trotters are experts on the soul. 60 min.
