Q&A with Zhengfan Yang

A stark juxtaposition of boredom and violence, Zhengfan Yang’s film forms an oblique chronicle of America’s tumultuous recent years through two discordant mediums: scenes of daily life seen from his apartment window in Chicago, and the persistent chatter heard over the city’s police scanner. Via a series of jarring contrasts and disconnected events, Footnote hints at the intersection of the mundane, the absurd, and the tragic at both local and global levels, and indexes the obscured views and fragmented communications across the nation’s political landscape.
