Safe at Home: Trains of Winnipeg w/ Coldshot

Fri, March 12 / 7 pm
Free to view!
Directed by Clive Holden
2003, Canada, 88 min

Please note the Q&A with Clive Holden & Evin Collins is postponed and will be rescheduled to a later date. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

A stunningly imaginative multi media experimental work rich in imagery and a sense of wonder. Straddling the borders between the worlds of cinema, visual art, and literature, Trains of Winnipeg explores elements of Clive’s life and the politics of form as well as audiovisual poems celebrating the raw joy of moving pictures, sound, color and light. Using a collage of film stocks – 8mm, super 8, 16, 35mm, and digital imagery from VHS found footage to digital the films include a variety of film and digital experiments and essays. Featuring a beautiful ambient score by two members of the Weakerthans John K Samson and Jason Tait, Christine Fellows, Steve Bates and Emily Gooden.

*New Vision Award at the 2005 Copenhagen International Documentary Festival.

Reviews

Supremely inventive... it's one of the finest non-narrative movies ever made in this country. Trains of Winnipeg juxtaposes the poet and filmmaker's ruminations on landscape and memory with a wide array of visual strategies, including home movies, travel films and found footage. Wry, wise and damn near sublime, Trains of Winnipeg makes you wish there were more movies just like it...mesmerizing.
- Eye Weekly
A multimedia masterwork. With Trains of Winnipeg, Holden and his collaborators combine esthetic innovation with the old-fashioned heft of moral and emotional weight. The result is an experimental epic.
- Alison Gillmor, Winnipeg Free Press
