DescriptionThe journey lasted all night. The windows were blacked out. It arrived the following morning. It was difficult to know precisely where. The bus had left the tarmac'd road sometime before, perhaps half an hour before it stopped. Running Light is about enforced labour and displaced persons, in two places, in two periods of the 20th century. Trapped outside the law, they are seen as different, and the function of this difference hides a conflict of interest between them and the society that displaces them.
