“Individual perceptions of memory are foregrounded in distance is relative by Amber Goodwyn, a silent travelogue built around the romantic conceit of a missing lover.”

Having just returned from the Images Festival in Toronto last week, were we spent a lot of time watching tons of Canadian work, we can assuredly say you are all for a treat at this one-night only screening! Cinema Project rolls out the red carpet to welcome guest curator and filmmaker Brett Kashmere to present this special program. Carte Blanche du Canada magnifies cracks in the friendly Northern façade: Isolation, loneliness, melancholia, the dissipation of rural life, the fall of civilization and the end of civilized play are displayed in this program of Canadian film et video. Brett will also be screening his newest video essay, Valery’s Ankle, at the PDX Fest this Sunday.
