Running Time : 1m 36s
An exceptionally short film, Wishes #43-#56 is an experiment in micro-drama as several dramatic arcs unfold within it's 1 min running time. It is is also a mashup of "unrelated" documentary footage out of which new meaning emerges.
Audio was gathered from a art installation at the San Jose Museum of Art, that asked visitors to leave an audio description of their wishes by speaking into an antique phone. The audio in the film represents a tiny fraction of the 500+ heartfelt wishes that were left during the run of the exhibit. The birds-eye view video footage was shot at a shopping district adjacent to the museum.
