Short Clip from The Day of Removal

From high above we see three men at hard physical labor, digging the ground and removing the rubble. The three men remain anonymous. We never see their faces. A single frame of each begins the rapid pace of the video and gradually other variations are explored with a steady addition and removal of frames. The Day of Removal attempts to convey the sense of physical strain that the body experiences in such labor. With rapid montage the film creates an audio-visual composition as a tribute to the labor and its  fallen flag.
