A Week in the Hole


Kevin Everson

A Week in the Hole, shot on digital video and 16mm, tells the story of a factory employee’s adjustment to his first week at a new job, focusing on the repetitive tasks he must learn and complete. Each task is filmed several times, detailing the employee’s gradual increase in understanding over time. The exaggerated colors of the products the factory produces are captured on film as digital video records the passage of time, the repetition of task, and the everyday gestures of the employee.
