This screening gathers together six decades of artists’ films that collectively refract the diverse nature of Montreal’s unique urban environment. From distinctive architectural markers like Habitat ‘67, Parc du Mont-Royal and Place Ville Marie to anonymous snowscapes, moon plays, and back alley explorations, these works compose a fluid, unfixed cinematic city that is at once dystopic and utopic, eerily empty and actively engaged, brutish and brimming with life.
Films by: Julian Biggs, Alexandre Larose, Arthur Lipsett, Daïchi Saïto, Michael Snow, Malena Szlam, and more.
Curated by Leo Goldsmith & Brett Kashmere for SCMS 2015
