Lift

It’s 24 minutes long. I watched the whole thing and wished it was longer.

Filmmaker Marc Isaacs sets himself up in a London tower block lift. The residents come to trust him and reveal the things that matter to them creating a humorous and moving portrait of a vertical community.

  1. Pileobunnies,

    That was brilliant. Thank you!

    I was particularly touched by the woman who kept coming back to re-answer questions because she’d just thought about them. Just because some guy in an elevator with a camera asked her something. Amazing how such a simple thing could affect someone.

  2. Mangawitch,

    Wow! Fascinating.

    Same as Pileobunnies – the woman who thought about the questions was amazing – as was the guy who was always offering food.

    What wonderful people.

  4. Danno,

    I like the food-offering guy the best. There’s something about offering strangers food that’s inherent in decent people.
