Coming and Going (A Short Drama)
Eric Walker, 2006
Set around a Sang-Mêlés Acadien Rappie Pie party on a snowy January day in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2002, Coming and Going (A Short Drama) opens and closes in a loudly ventilated train compartment. The train is stopped on a siding waiting for another train to pass. As It passes we are drawn away in a blast of wind and snow into an unfolding family story which resolves back at the start with an indefinite sense of passing time, which suggests both permanence and loss.
