“It was amazing to me how little evidence there was in the film of the Time in which it was made, or even the location. I found myself tending to forget that these were City-chores, that this was rooftop work, so forth: just the labor, the continuity of labor, timeless, and ongoing, withOUT inexorable. Bravo.” Stan Brakhage

« J’étais stupéfait par le peu d’indications que donnait le film quant au moment, et même quant au lieu de sa création. J’oubliais presque que c’étaient des choeurs urbains, des travaux sur les toits, etc. : juste le travail, la continuité du travail, intemporel, incessant, inexorable. Bravo. » Stan Brakhage
