About

"Strange Weather deals with a quartet of crack addicts in Miami, just sitting around, while outside, the biggest hurricane of the century is about to hit. The Pixelvision camera roams restlessly through the apartment, focusing nervously on the tiniest details, but never staying in any one spot for very long. Meanwhile, the addicts engage in desultory conversation, or make phone calls, or tell stories about their past experiences. The point is that attention is never in the here and now. It is always shifting around and being refocused elsewhere. Nothing 'happens' in the course of the film, which is to say that what really happens is the empty passage of time." – Steven Shaviro Made with Margie Strosser.
