Cineworks and Iris Film Collective present a SWARM 18 event:

A Program of Films Curated by Amanda Thomson  
Cineworks Annex Artist in Residence

When viewed from Point Grey the North Shore Mountains take on the silhouette of a sleeping woman. This idea has followed me around for at least a decade. In 2014 I made Sleeping Mountains Lie in response, but she persisted. For the last couple of years I have been working on a film that reworks the theme set out in SML, reuses its opening shot and finishes by taking it further East. Who is this woman, what have we made of her, where is her voice? This program does not answer these questions, as I hope the forthcoming film will. Instead it lends what I have tentatively titled “The Mountain’s View” some context. - Amanda Thomson
