I’VE HEARD THE MERMAIDS SINGING

SAT, NOV 8 / 4 pm
Dir. Patricia Rozema | Canada | 1987 | 84 mins
Starring Shelia McCarthy, Paule Baillargeron, Anne Marie MacDonald

INTRODUCED BY PATRICIA ROZEMA

Patricia Rozema’s feature film debut was invited to the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes and won the coveted “Prix de la Jeunesse” at Cannes in 1987 where it received a lengthy ten minute standing ovation. Winner of dozens of awards around the world it was also voted “Top Ten Canadian Films of All Time” by a group of international critics. A critical and commercial success, the film features a terrific performance by actress Sheila McCarthy
as a socially inept secretary named Polly and the tale of her fascination with the church gallery’s worldly art curator and her girlfriend Mary Joseph (played by novelist/actress/playwright Anne Marie MacDonald) – a maker of magically glowing paintings. Polly’s story is told in the form of a self confession, taped on video. The film’s title is drawn from T.S. Eliot’s poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.
