THE FILMS OF JACK CHAMBERS

Wed, Nov 12 & Thu, Nov 13 / 7 PM
Curated and introduced by Irene Bindi
free admission!

In 2008, on the 30th anniversary of Jack Chambers’ death, he remains one of the best known Canadian painters, and one of the least known Canadian filmmakers. Over two evenings curator Irene Bindi will be presenting a rare screening of the complete film works of Jack Chambers, from his experimental shorts to his ecstatic masterwork, HART OF LONDON.

Wed. Nov. 12 – 7:00PM

Stan Brakhage called HART OF LONDON “one of the greatest films ever made” and considered it among his five favourite films of all time. Existing in its own unique realm, HART OF LONDON comprises a compilation of local photographs, local news footage,
and Chambers own footage meticulously assembled. Mesmerizing.

With an MFA in Film and Video from York University and a BA in Film Studies and English from University of Western Ontario Irene Bindi has an exceptional background in film making, writing, projecting and programming.
