The first feature by Canadian experimental filmmaker Isiah Medina is an explosive digital diary dealing with ideas about time, love, philosophy, poverty, and poetry, all erupting within a densely layered montage that is as formally rigorous as it is emotionally raw. A convulsive video collage of fragmented footage – of notes, sketches, reality, and reenactments – shot on various formats (including the RED camera, mobile phones and 16mm), 88:88 depicts Medina and his friends trying to make sense of life's chaos and confusion in down-and-out Winnipeg. Equating a sudden power outage with a rapid editing cut, the film progresses by way of a mathematical pattern of construction/deconstruction/repetition, creating a poetic, disjunctive tempo that ambitiously mixes late Godard, hip-hop freestyling, and Greek and French philosophy. (Andréa Picard)
