In the film many people can be seen as the
camera films them being ascended into heaven
one by one in Grand Central Station in New York
People: Many of the people in the piece are staring straight
forward at the camera while others are engaging in
conversations, laughing, yawning or messing with their hair,
this makes the representations seem fairly straightforward but
in the closing credits the people are given explanations to
their narratives and personal histories which are hidden from
the film so this represents the audience rather than the actors
in the piece as it’s saying we can’t judge people by their face
in one shot and can’t possibly know about them, what makes
the film seem so simple is then transformed into something
grand and a interesting character study of both the characters
on screen and the audience themselves.
The location is Grand Central Station in New York on
a seemingly never ending escalator. The effect of
the escalator was used by having a mirror mounted,
with the black and white grain quality of the film is
makes the characters appear that they are being
‘swallowed’ by the blackness and carried off
somewhere else entirely. This creates the sense of
mystery as the audience watch the parade of
people carried off into darkness and makes the
audience feel there is a higher presence at work
and this escalator is a doorway perhaps to heaven
The only sound used in the piece is the
mundane sound of the classical music which
locks the characters into one identity.
The definition of the title ‘Necrology’ means an
obituary notice literally a list of the dead.
