Everyday People

JoAnn Elam’s unfinished project, EVERYDAY PEOPLE (filmed from 1979 to 1990), is based on her experiences as a letter carrier for the US Postal Service in Chicago (primarily the Logan Square neighborhood). Camera in hand, Elam follows co-workers as they deliver the mail throughout various Chicago neighborhoods. Elam’s construction of this film-in-progress creates a lovely cadence and rhythm that transforms the repetitive motions of the postal worker — pushing the mail cart, carrying the bag, avoiding the dogs, opening the gates, and climbing the steps to the front door — to something poetic yet startlingly familiar. Their stories (heard mostly in voice-over) are those of everyday people who at the time struggled with issues of race and gender in relationship to their work.

FMovies Review:

One of the best in it’s genre, ever released. I accept that my expectations are very low before I see this movie. Everyday People is a long movie, with the space and leisure to expand and explore its themes.

Easily movie with the best dialogues ever. Everytime I watch this movie online, I really enjoy the music, it is just pure soul of that movie. Everyday People stand up to the test of time.

This director is great. With Everyday People online he seems to be setting himself some kind of a test – how far over the top can he go? I wanted to add this full movie to the web and now everybody can see this movie online for free.
