4 min co-directed with Daniel Claridge

Dragstrip takes place at the Lebanon Valley dragstrip, where spectators, drivers and mechanics wait for their race.

Comprised of images of racing aficionados, as they behold the sport they love, this film offers a rare opportunity to look at others in the act of observation, transforming the screen into a kind of ethnographic mirror.

“The glorification of the banal—a visual representation of America’s hobbies being less about the event than our reaction to it.” 
– TIFF 15 Review
