PROGRAM NOTES
by Tom McSorley, Executive Director, Canadian Film Institute

In the two decades between the recently-restored 1986 Newfoundland carnivalesque classic, The Adventure of Faustus Bidgood, and the sublime deadpan artistry of 2007’s Continental: A Film Without Guns, the Canadian cinema has consistently rewarded domestic and international audiences with absorbing, idiosyncratic and, yes, entertaining films. Fiercely independent and formally daring, the films in this series offer visions of a contemporary Canada that will intrigue, surprise, move, and engage you.

From Catherine Martin’s evocative documentary about a Quebec society transformed (The Spirit of Places), to Keith Behrman’s poetic family drama set in the interior of British Columbia (Flower & Garnet), to Francois Girard’s stunningly inventive portrait of Canadian genius, Glenn Gould (Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould), to Bruce McDonald’s equally experimental portrait of a troubled teen in Winnipeg (The Tracey Fragments), these films demonstrate the breadth of vision that exists and persists in contemporary Canadian cinema.

Enjoy yourself; be Canadian: these six extraordinary films certainly do, and certainly are.

Presented in association with the Canadian Film Institute
and with the generous support of the Klondike Visitors Association
