Hanging by an elastic




MARCH 20, 2021 - APRIL 18, 2021

One of the two films of the 71 top submissons selected out of more than 400 submissions. A mask, symbol of the pandemic, hanging by its elastic; the humanity-at-large, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, all hanging by a thread. In addition to the environmental impacts caused by the increase in improperly discarding masks, it symbolizes the hope of the return to normalcy.  

Music paired with "Marble" by Roger and Brian Eno.


From The Music Center's Website:

A Quiet Scene: L.A. is a free film project and screening initiative that asked the public to create an original short film that is an authentic reflection of Los Angeles during current times, using a track from Roger and Brian Eno's Luminous EP as the score. A Quiet Scene: L.A. provides a Los Angeles perspective to the highly successful 2020 public audio-visual project—A Quiet Scene—created by Deutsche Grammophon and the Eno brothers in 2020 in support of their Mixing Colours album; this program featured short scenes shot by people from their newly found confined spaces at home in the first wave of the global pandemic. The competition/screening project is presented by The Music Center, Los Angeles’ performing arts center, and dublab, a community supported radio station based on Los Angeles, and in collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon.
