Asphalt Watches is a true story and an award winning feature-length animation based on a real-life hitchhiking trip taken by the two filmmakers, Shayne Ehman and Seth Scriver. Asphalt Watches details the hilarious and harrowing journey of Bucktooth Cloud and Skeleton Hat as they travel eastward across Canada in the summer of 2000. The film has been described as “the next generation’s log driver’s waltz” and “a wise picaresque journey – full of richly inventive characters and gloriously implausible situations.”
Scriver and Ehman work in a wide range of mediums, including self-published zines, comics, music, painting, airbrushing, sculpture, painting, collage, graffiti and poetry. Both their individual and collaborative work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
The screening of Asphalt Watches is the first event of the Talk Talk Talk Speaker Series, hosted in collaboration with the Fine Arts Reading Room (FARR), the Fine Arts Student Alliance (FASA), the Art Matters Festival, and the Fine Arts Office of Student Relations.
Attendance is open to members of the Concordia University community and the general public.

In contemporary society, the concept of risk has been defined as a negative element that is to be avoided at all costs. Vast networks have been created to limit the individual’s exposure to risk, challenging their belief in their own competency. In the hope of gain but with the risk of loss, private firms have succeeded in disproving this ideology, embracing risk and innovation to create new enterprises.
