Shelter
Canada / 8:00 / 2001 / sound / colour
"Shelter" is a multi-layered experimental film that cleverly weaves archival social commentary and recent political activism in a playful analysis of our culture's misplaced priorities. The film blends a variety of appropriated material - including a homeless demonstration during the gala premiere of an Atom Egoyan film at the Toronto Film Festival - with archival footage of circuses, westerns, and Pierre Burton discussing the pros and cons of building a bomb shelter.

"Shelter" also celebrates the inherent qualities of the film medium, qualities that have quickly become marginalized through the current obsession with digital technology.
