Further information

"An old man has been hit by a car and is now huddled in a bus shelter, where Donigan Cumming has stopped to talk to him. It's cold, and he can't move his legs. He has been married for forty-five years, has two children, fights with his wife, and believes in God's help. All this we learn from the soundtrack of Shelter. On screen we see only wavering, semi-abstract images : the asphalt floor of the bus shelter, a fragment of a hand, a fluttering scarf. Cumming's work often provokes the viewer with its intimate, even intrusive gaze at sickness or aging. Shelter provokes in a different way, by refusing to show us anything of the encounter the film is supposedly about."
