Works by Toronto Artists
The films in this program are disparate in style, all employing different experimental and documentary techniques to unsettle the stories they tell. While all possess strong authorial voices, nothing here is expected or given, even as they reach out to meet us more than half way. The layered voices that emerge in each work shift across registers of audibility and visibility in the form of intertitles, translated subtitles, personal recountings, speculative framings, telephone calls, diary fragments, voice recordings, re-animations, selfies, stolen hand-held recordings, drone footage, and family photographs. However, what connects them is that from work to work, each tells its particular story of migration and loss, what it means to remember the past, what it means to be a family, what it means to belong.
Tickets for this screening can be purchased online.
Images Festival runs at venues across the city April 20th to 27th.
