About

This is a solemn approach to the mundane ritual of the ever-awaited coffee break. It is also a self-portrait among fellow (women) office workers. "COFFEE BREAK... is a single shot movie, though shown through several rolls of film... It is an arrogant statement to declare this shot not only interesting, but self-sufficient, as these six women, including Camhi, smoke cigarettes, drink coffee, read and exchange the paper, a picture album and a book. It takes a perversity to enjoy it... I decided to stay with it and find pleasure in a catalogue of gesture and incident and a comfort in its seemingly static ambitions." – Anthony Bannon, BUFFALO EVENING NEWS
