Rendezvous with Madness Film Tour: Land of Not Knowing

Sun, Aug 13 / 3 pm
Directed by Steve Sanguedolce
2016, Canada, 71 min

In this bold new experimental documentary, four artists talk about suicide, the role the recurring thought has played in their life and art, the struggle to understand and overcome the impulse, and the ongoing attempt to confront the stigma of even discussing the very concept of suicide. With a frankness that is both bracing and illuminating, Sanguedolce’s subjects tell their stories, and the filmmaker responds with a striking visual scheme that permits us something rarely attempted in the engagement with this most misunderstood of conditions: a sense of first person understanding. Geoff Pevere, Program Director of Rendenz vous du Madness will introduce the film and answer questions.

Plays with: Scrapbook / Dir. Mike Hoolboom, 2015, Canada, 18 min / In the 1960s, a Toronto filmmaker named Jeffrey Paull shot footage of children and teenagers in a so-called ‘development center’ in Ohio. It was part of a process whereby the children, experiencing a range of mental disorders, learn how to make images. Fifty years later Mike Hoolboom re-visits Paull’s work to astonishingly immediate and powerful effect.

Co-presented by Rendezvous with Madness and Art Beat Studio.
