an exercise in parting is a poetic examination of a go-go dancer walking home from work late at night attempts to resurrect her lost childhood on kiddie rides in front of a small store. Close-up images of the artist’s face collapse into abstraction as the pony ride breaks down. This film is part of the trilogy "Close, but no Cigar."
