Class of 2002 is subtitled "a photo-memoir" because it takes the form of a documentary fusing snapshots, home movies, found footage and voiceover to recall the tragic lives of five young people the narrator knew in high school. This is, of course, a work of fiction and through its anecdotes, illustrations, and asides I hope to tell an overarching story. The narrator focuses on his five classmates, whom we discover through his descriptions and recollections, but eventually we learn more about his own life, and how it connects to the people and places we've encountered.
You can view the short film, uninterrupted and in its entirety here:
(It's also on Vimeo; however, I had trouble viewing it on that platform, and switched to You Tube.)
I will return later with further details about the how & why of this film. For now, please watch it. I made it for you guys, as well as for me. Enjoy.
