THE SEVENTH SHIFT- HONORABLE MENTION
The Jury’s Comment: This work by Ilchuk is direct, quiet, and imbued with a penetrating force. The abandoned post-industrial space is shot and edited beautifully. The central figure, a woman who works four jobs utterly alone, moves in a measured and slow pace. The dialogue established between the tough environment and this worker as she moves from one shift to the next in complete silence creates a complex portrait that depicts the ages that have defined her.
