February 1, 2013 – The Winnipeg Film Group is pleased to present the first DVD collection of the films of Winston Washington Moxam (1963-2011) to commemorate a five-city Canadian tour and retrospective of Winston’s films.

Moxam is, to date, the most significant black filmmaker to emerge from Manitoba. His independent body of work spans two decades, from 1989 to 2010, and includes short fiction, documentary, and two features. All of these works address issues of race, racism and social justice, and significantly reflect the experience of living in Winnipeg and Manitoba. As filmmaker/writer Matthew Rankin writes in his essay “From the Outside Looking In: The Films of Winston Washington Moxam”: “Questions of race have rarely been tackled by Winnipeg filmmakers. Through the sensationalist 1990s Moxam was the lone cinematic voice to speak for racial understanding in Manitoba. In this respect, Moxam must be seen as a pioneer. Only very recently has he been joined by a younger generation of filmmakers – notably Divya Mehra and Darryl Nepinak – who, like Moxam before them, ask provocative questions of mainstream white audiences.”

The DVD features new transfers directly from the 16mm prints:
