Factory Talk

Running time: 5 minutes approx

Factory Talk is an intergenerational conversation about identity, sexuality and masculinity in a rural factory. Through the clanging of metal they make small talk, but as the gripes and grumbles testify to better times, the questions rising on the factory floor are of more than just nostalgia.

Coming Out

In the middle of lockdown due to COVID-19. A budding romance is explored through an exchange of gifts and notes. During very uncertain times one thing can be certain, we are living in a time of the unknown. Blaine finds himself stuck in the same routine day in and day out. He count’s down the days until lockdown is finally eased. It seems like it will never end. The television is tuned in to the depressing news of how many people have died that day. He can’t shake this overwhelming sense of hopelessness, when a visit from an unknown neighbour peaks a new interest.
