Dear David:

University Of Alberta Alumni & Documntary Filmmaker Trevor Anderson(MCMXCV B.A.) has a sense of history. He gets right up close & personal II the landmark High Level Bridge in the film, "The High Level Bridge", showing what it would be like II jump off of it. He does this while throwing a documentary camera down off it, deliberately destroying in the North Saskatchewan River below. This sense of inanimate terror highlights the poor souls who have jumped off of the bridge in despair. Like Trevor, I think the High Level is iconic & can see why with its eyegrabbing type of look why it might be so sought after as a way II stand down in life.

The High Level isn't just infrastructure, nay II a student of art, film, & important objects like Trevor, its a part of Edmonton's living history. Lets hope Trevor has much success as he starts out on his film career.

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water,
