"That is the electric plant over there."

Nightride is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Work In Progress. It was originally broadcast in 1986.


Rhythmic humming. Tour of the city: electric plant lit by candles. A power plant worker is interrogated about a bombing, his job, his life, his childhood. Something is missing dialog. Religious counselor type asks his subject to guess at the solution to resolving the tension between the physical and the spiritual. The five things which are important in life. Confession. The prison psychologist recording: don't trust angels and the save my ass daily declaration. A woman talks about what she likes. Life as a series of forgetting. A disappearing girlfriend. A man in the street talks about a final exam nightmare, the life and death box. Rhythmic humming and nonsense verse.
