Loretta's Flowers by Brendan Prost

Loretta’s Flowers is a queer character drama that follows a young woman on a languid summer’s day in Toronto as she cycles between increasing intimate encounters with three discrete relations, trapped in a pattern of insatiable longing.

Remains by Louise Bourque
Remains (Canada 4:50 min. 2011) screens online on Owens Art Gallery Video Club. Remains is "a celluloid deterioration that addresses the ephemeral quality of the captured moment (the present) while revealing the insistent power of human presence in even the most deteriorated of states. The image of the mother is like a ghost that we won't let go."

July 2-8
Mechanical Memory by Amanda Dawn Christie
Mechanical Memory (Canada 5 min. 2005) screens online on Owens Art Gallery Video Club. Created from super 8 footage that was shot in the 1970s of the family dogs and the trains that the artist's father worked on, this film explores the decay of memory and image.
