"One day in Belfast,
women hear that a prisoner has died
and they angrily congregate in the street.
Armed with garbage can lids,
they bang the ground to mark the bleak courage
of the ninth hunger striker to die in silence.
Besides bewilderment, what else remains
in the stillness after such a singular and pathetic gesture?"
This news item is the starting point for "Comptines", an experimental video.
