IN THE COURSE OF HUMAN EVENTS

In the Course of Human Events is an exquisite black and white surrealist depiction of the Embarcadero Freeway demolition, in which dinosaurlike tractors gnash at an organic tangle of steel reinforcements. Inanimate objects and heavy machinery become living metaphors for generation through the director's signature use of high-contrast, time-lapse, and double exposure cinematography.
