Shot in one take on a single roll of Super 8 and using found audio of answering machine messages, Citizens Against Basswood is an amusing record of a man’s dogged attempt to petition against the plan to plant trees in his neighbourhood. By voicing the sentiments of fellow residents, he offers multiple takes on his civic responsibility. - Jane Kim
