ILLUSION OF NORMALCY: ESCAPING THE ’80S

Curated by Guy Maddin, with essay by Shereen Jerrett | Released November 2008

We were so normal, shooting those films, and we still are. And we are still out there. As you read this we will still be carefully threading film into our cameras, in search of that other room, outside this illusion of normalcy. Sometimes we get something, sometimes we don’t. Sometimes when you look into that dark room, the room looks back. Good thing there is glass between us… or is there? John and I had a running bet for many years about which member of the WFG was going to climb to the top of the Artspace building and start taking potshots. Sometimes we put the money on ourselves. Filmmaking is like that.

READ THE FULL CURATORIAL ESSAY

Released in November 2008, ILLUSION OF NORMALCY: Escaping the ’80s, is the third disc in a six-DVD set celebrating films from the Winnipeg Film Group’s Distribution Catalogue and history. Featuring 4 short films from 1986 – 1992, this collection demonstrates the watchability and delightful oddness of films created during this time.

The films on all six DVDs were selected and curated by fellow WFG filmmakers and all curators are represented in at least one of the collections.
