SEARCHING LANDSCAPES: Manitoba Narrative Shorts

SAT, NOV 29 / 4:30 pm
Curated by Kevin Nikkel
Free Admission!

Short dramatic films by Manitoba filmmakers communicate something collectively about the intersection of our Cinematheque, of our city, and of the art of dramatic films. The context for all this is the Canadian prairie, and more specifically, the fly over city of Winnipeg. It would seem an unlikely place for such prolific and creative cinema to emerge. Our relentless climate and remote location compared to other urban centres contributes to the content we produce. Each film explores the intersection of setting, search for identity, and the struggle of the protagonist, elements central to dramatic storytelling.  (Kevin Nikkel)
