Bridge Tender is observing over eight minutes an opening and closing sequence of Maine’s (USA) last manually operated swing bridge, performed by a woman. The single shot, that is used, brings the spectactle of labor itself in focus. The monotonous movements seem to have their own choreography. Bridge Tender is an ode to daily labour practise and historical reenactment. The film is situated somewhere between monotonous, irritating and funny.
