Dir. Kelly Sears / USA / 2009 Enchanting operators, covert government plots, Cold War paranoia and ordinary telephones forever changed how we got in touch with one another... www.kellysears.com/ Voice on the Line is a collage animation made from figures cut out of archival ephemeral films from the late 1950s. This animation mixes the history of these films with events of this era which results in a large scale secret operation that veers bizarrely off course. The film also reflects on current and troubled relationships between the areas of national security, civil liberties and telephone companies. Voice on the Line explores how technology can be used to shape our fears, desires and how we feel connected.
