Marc Isaacs

LIFT is a short film by Marc Isaacs, that follows him almost ‘becoming part of the lift’, while interacting with those in, and outside the doors of the lift. Within the 25 minute film, we start to learn information about characters who use this lift on a daily basis including names, life stories, and also which people are more interactive than others. This is revealed as a London tower block and “residents come to trust him and reveal the things that matter to them creating a humorous and moving portrait of a vertical community.”

This short film was slow in places, however watching this vertical community grow over a short period of time was fascinating. I was curious to see the types of personalities that would enter the lift, and the way they interacted with Isaacs, and I was not disappointed. As an onlooker, this strange sense of community was also somewhat comforting.
