This is a short film entitled “Override” directed and written by Lisa Ginsberg featuring the song “Cold Comfort,” written by Jackie Strano and performed by The Hail Marys (with lovely back-up vocals by Judea Eden). Lisa had been a big fan of The Hail Marys and particularly loved “Cold Comfort” which inspired her to create not only a music video but a short film featuring the song. Override premiered at Frameline’s International Film Festival in San Francisco in 2000.
Jackie created a video with some images put together for their original song “Second Narrows” about immigrant spirit, beauty of Vancouver, family love, greed and the infamous bridge collapse that killed Jack’s namesake- their grandfather John (Jack) Wright, an ironworker.
