Winnipeg Film Group
winnipeg film group


Celebrated internationally, the Winnipeg Film Group produces some of Canada's most original cinema. This year the Winnipeg Film Group celebrates its 40th anniversary. To commemorate this, Solomon Nagler was commissioned to assemble an anthology of work produced over four decades. Transgressive, abstract and surreal, these artists explore the manic energy and melancholic reflections from a frozen city that dreams a remarkable cinema.

Isolating Landscapes

Heidi Phillips
Canada

2007 | 0:05:00


A first exploration of narrative, Isolating Landscapes hints at relationship woes by mixing both spare and lush hand-crafted imagery with confessional text. Beautifully minimal scenes give way to denser moments, as when an ice-sculpture of an anatomical heart is hung, lantern-like, over a darkening street.
