In Joe Hill we witness the private act of a man, alone, in the middle of the night, making his testimony for the song he wants played at his funeral. The solitary act of this man’s demonstration is recorded by two cameras: the one the subject sets up to record himself, and a second, more distantly placed and controlled by Murphy.
