The Green Bag is a single take, 7-minute, real-time documentary shot from the terrace of the Circle Hotel restaurant in Gondor, Ethiopia. While it allows a brief look at the density and multiplicity of everyday interactions taking place around the camera, the film also stimulates questions related to defining the essence of what documentary film is as a cultural artefact. The simple act of framing creates a dramaturgy that at times resonate with early silent films.
