On first viewing, I thought this unusual short film, made by UCLA students in 1958, was a contemporary film student submission, done in the style of the 50s and with a theme that resonates today: How automation and technology fill our lives with “noise” and how we often sacrifice self-awareness and intimacy for convenience and high tech.
This is interesting. It made me think of the fact that there’s rarely “silence” anymore. The only time I think I’ve felt I’ve experienced it was during the winter when we had so much snow fall in a short time it shut everything down and I went outside of there were not sounds of cars on the highway, etc….nothing. It was kind fo nice. 🙂

I agree! I once stayed overnight on an agricultural farm.. there was no sound, and no light. It was scary waking up in the middle of the night to complete,utter blackness and silence.
From the “roaring 20’s”!!! Oh my. And how much noiser life has become since 1958…
