traveling films

A traveling film festival goes to some interesting places that a big metropolitan festival does not. There’s culture in the rural, and expanded landscapes inform regional communities. Conversations on the Lakean environmental documentary about the rural places of my childhood in towns bordering Lake Superior, has screened in several Northern Ontario venues and festivals, traveled through parts of India in Voices From the Waters, and in rural southern USA locations in the Ozark Shorts Film Festival, Ozark Mountains regional festival, USA. 

These rural communities are participants in helping to shape critical environmental discourses around water, land, and community, within multi-vocal themes and expressions.

photo/video gallery installation

This exhibition is the culmination of a 10-year photographic documentation of a particular view from my home on Toronto’s waterfront, facing north. In the decade between 2004 to 2014, the visible landscape has changed tremendously, as a once wide view of the city gradually becomes an increasingly enclosed space.
