Trapline represents a new way of considering film as a vehicle of projected movement... The film is composed entirely of static camera shots.

"Filmed in a London (Ontario) swimming pool, Trapline is a painterly film conveying a state of limbo - the still pool with the light reflection on the water, the grid of the high glass roof, three figures sitting under the shower, with the torn curtain, voices echoing from the pool walls always slightly out of range, giving one the feeling of being trapped between the unconscious and consciousness.” - Tina Keane for Readings, 1977
