Ian Andrews
1996

This film is based on a piece of found home movie footage from the 1940’s or 50’s which documents the activities of a military training institution for young boys in Sydney. This example of austerity filmmaking inspired me to re-edit the footage on video. The sequences are punctuated by text based on Michel Foucault’s “Discipline and Punish,” which speaks about the penetration of the human body by a regime of meticulous control which underlies all the institutions of Western Society. The result is a structuralist- materialist montage based upon the rhythms of disciplinary time, punctuated by commands, shouts and whistles.
