The Wonderful Worlds of Nak / Directed by Patrick Lowe, 2013, Canada, 27 min / Guided by a mix of new age philosophy, comic book ambition, and a fundamental belief in the interconnectedness of events, Winnipeg artist Robert Pasternak creates a fast-paced and fun vision of a colourful and eclectic universe for all to marvel at and experience.

Andrew Milne Dreams of Machines / Directed by Patrick Lowe, 2015, Canada, 29 min / In this fast-paced odyssey, multidisciplinary artist Andrew Milne creates his special brand of oversized machines to challenge the way we see the world. We see how his creations function and how ordinary people react to and interact with them.

*Winner Best Documentary / Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.

*Windy Award Winner / Greg Lowe / IATSE 856 Overall Sound Prize for music composition for Andrew Milne Dreams of Machines.

Harry Nelken at Your Service / Directed by Patrick Lowe, 2017, Canada, 28 min / Legendary local actor Harry Nelken talks to the audience about his life and career.

Reviews

Visually striking, fast-paced...does a good job of explaining Milne’s motivations, machines, and art practice. - Anne Hawe, Community News Commons
