Death by VHS: New Cinematic Discoveries from Winnipeg, Manitoba Monday, August 30, 2010, 19:30h Presented by DIM Cinema Pacific Cinémathèque 1131 Howe St., Vancouver, BC
Curated by Clint Enns and Leslie Supnet.
A long, rich history of lo-budget inventiveness is woven into the civic consciousness of Winnipeg, Manitoba, the birthplace of K-Tel, Hunky Bill’s Perogie Maker, and the Green Garbage Bag. Countless Winnipeg artists have utilized the same Do-It-Yourself spirit in their practice, speaking to tradition as well as environmental necessity. Enriched with strange humour, hand-crafted experimentation and lo-fi/high-tec conundrums, the films and videos in this program are testaments to an aesthetic movement that is wholeheartedly Winnipeg’s own.
