A hypnotic film that catches you off guard and does not let go once it has you ensnared. This experimental film carries so many messages that it will leave you punch drunk! The music, the images and the poetry will leave an indelible mark in your mind!
Fourteen poetic segments on various social and geological issues, ranging from a highly personal account of an event the filmmaker witnssed to detached documentation of Winnipeg, intersect in this film to form a personal city symphony (an oxymoron, but that is what it is) for Winnipeg. Immersive and well-paced.
Watching this, I feel like I've been set alight. It's
very musical...like a fugue. The rhythms of voice, sound, image and music cycle throughout and snake around each other. The total effect is
as musical as it is cinematic and poetic. Astonishing.
