Praise
Canada / 24:38 / 2005 / silent / b/w
A prologue excerpt from the poem "Try to praise the mutilated world" sets the mood for this film of contained contrasts: black and white, negative and positive, light and dark. Recurring images of trees root the film, unifying its segments, and suggest further twinnings: (knowledge of) good and evil, humanity and nature, ephemeral and eternal - praise and mutilation.

"A meditation on mutability and transience in the face of the perduring stone of the canyon." - Barbara Godard
