Documentary, Films in Competition, Short Film

In Chevelle, Kevin Jerome Everson captures two workhorse GM cars at a moment of drastic transformation. A junkyard crusher puts metal to metal and smashes the cars into tidy rectangular shapes while the life juices and hydraulic fluids drain out of them. The resulting film is partially formalist metaphor and partially the sheer pleasure of seeing stuff get really smashed up.
