Louise Bourque is a French Canadian filmmaker who studied cinema at Concordia University in Montreal and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After living abroad for thirty years, in the United States and elsewhere, she has recently returned to her native Edmonton, New Brunswick. Her films have been shown in nearly fifty countries and broadcast by PBS and the Sundance Channel in the US, as well as on Télé-Québec in Canada and SBS in Australia.
Stan Brakhage (1933-2003) is most well-known for the development, from the late 1950s onwards, of a cinema (he made over 450 films) in which the camera replaces the protagonist, freeing it from conventional positions and hence engagement with both subject and the viewer. His work is characterized by images where variations in exposure and focus, handheld camera movement, light flares, refractions and flashes are in a constant state of flux and interplay.

Film has laws of its own, but along with the other arts in the period around 1960 it searched for certain “zero points” that didn't revolve around nothing, but the whole. This three-part film programme, curated by Alexander Horwath and Regina Schlagnitweit, includes works from the period between 1958 and 2021 – by Stephanie Barber, Yves-André Delubac, Hollis Frampton, Jorge Lorenzo, Ernst Schmidt Jr., Aldo Tambellini, Joyce Wieland and many more. It also offers rare insight into Gregory Markopoulos’s cinematic life’s work ENIAIOS (1947–91), presented by the film artist Robert Beavers.
