Join CFMDC and Goose Lane Editions for the virtual launch of Moments of Perception: Experimental Film in Canada. Featuring a video presentation and in-depth discussion with the authors Stephen Broomer and Michael Zryd, as well as a conversation between editors Barbara Sternberg, Jim Shedden, and special guest Brett Kashmere of Canyon Cinema. This is an event you won’t want to miss!

Moments of Perception is a landmark book. The first history of twentieth and early-twenty-first-century Canadian experimental filmmaking, it maps avant-garde film across the country from the 1950s to the present day.

Experimental film is political in its very existence, critical of the status quo by definition. In Canada, some of the country’s best-known artists took up the moving image as a form of artistic expression, allowing them to explore explicitly political themes. Mike Hoolboom’s exposure of the horror of AIDS, Josephine Massarella’s concern for the environment, and Joyce Wieland’s satiric look at US patriotism are just a few examples of work that contributed to social movements and provided a means to explore issues of race and gender and 2SLGBTQ+ and Indigenous identities.

Moments of Perception offers a fresh perspective on the ever-evolving history of Canada’s experimental film and moving image media arts.

Books will be available for purchase during the event through Ben McNally Books.
