Who’s Pushing?


by Ana Grarian

There was once a village overlooking a river.
The people who lived there were very kind.
These residents, according to parable,
began noticing increasing numbers of drowning people
caught in the river’s swift current.
And so they went to work devising ever more elaborate technologies to resuscitate them.
So preoccupied were these heroic villagers with rescue and treatment

that they never thought to look upstream

to see who was pushing the victims in.

This film is a walk up that river.  The river of human cancer.
