Spotlight on our cinema
CANADA , Ontario | 63 minutes | 2020
Since the 1970s, Judy Rebick has been at the forefront of feminist struggles in Canada. To Mike Hoolboom, she’s nothing less than a “living archive” of her era’s activism and battles for the rights of all minorities and marginalized people, and an exceptional woman who has overcome deep personal traumas all her life. Their unique relationship gives rise to a rich film – an imaginative hybrid experimental documentary. Its foundation is an impressive collection of archival material and Super 8 footage (including famous incidents like the attack on Henry Morgentaler in 1983), edited, re-edited and reworked, presented in six chapters linked by poignant narration.“a surreal, dreamlike film which is both beautiful and strange at the same time.” In Their Own League “Beautiful, complex, confusing and original, are a perfect fit for both this documentary and the person that is Judy Rebick.” In Their Own League In collaboration with the Festival Filministes
