Isolation in the 1980s (compilation DVD)

$20.00$325.00

ISOLATION IN THE 1980s

Curated by John Kozak | Released February 2005

Considering the fertile creative environment that existed at the Winnipeg Film Group during this period it is not surprising that there was such a volume of production, nor is it surprising that the quality was so high. What is puzzling is that so many of the films explored thematically similar terrain. The filmmakers that had the courage to venture into drama, and the confidence to produce longer and more complex films were marshalling their resources to explore predominantly one theme, isolation.

Released in February 2005, ISOLATION IN THE 1980s, is the second disc in a six-DVD set celebrating films from the Winnipeg Film Group’s Distribution Catalogue and history. Featuring 4 short films released between 1981 and 1990 this collection contains some of the most popular films to emerge from the filmmaking scene in Winnipeg during this time. A must have!

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