Pre-Screening Reception and Closing Night Party from 6 PM – 7 PM 

It’s easy to be invisible here.  Hiding behind your gas barbeque on your freshly made pine deck, quietly eating your kielbasa and cubed cheese at a wedding social. Easy as well to hide behind your camera, just letting it gently roll as everyone acts so normal in front of you. So normal.  Nice folks, really. But then, something happens, something you weren’t expecting as you carefully threaded the magazine with film.  Every now and then you get a glimpse beyond this white room of normalcy, and you see something furtive, creepy, bizarre. And then it vanishes, and you are left feeling slightly – what? Embarrassed? Disconcerted? Asking the people next to you, did you just see what I just saw? (Shereen Jerrett, guest speaker)

ILLUSION OF NORMALCY: ESCAPING THE 80s is the fourth anniversary compilation to be released by the Winnipeg Film Group. The Winnipeg Film Group gratefully acknowledges funding from the  Government of Manitoba for supporting this DVD to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
