Overview

A poignant short film set to the fourth part of Samuel Beckett's Quatre Poèmes, as narrated by frequent BS Johnson collaborator William Hoyland. The poem is read against a backdrop of associative shots: the head and shoulders of a woman, a crumbling Victorian chimney stack, a forlorn row of houses, cobblestones, discarded rubbish, and a final tracking shot of a high wall.

This title is also available on the DVD/Blu-ray 'You're Human Like the Rest of Them: The films of BS Johnson' in the BFI Flipside collection.
