Mexico by Mike Hoolboom & Steve Sanguedolce

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

On Friday, I dropped in on curated screening called Re-visioning Cultural Encounters presented by the Pleasure Dome programming collective. At the end of the programme was a film from 1992 that I really enjoyed.

Entitled Mexico, the best way I can think of describing it is as a fantastical and quite possibly insane travelogue about a journey through Mexico. It is equal parts funny, hypnotic and fascinating.

A streaming version of the film is available to watch here.

Life Doesn’t Frighten Me by Stephen Dunn

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Christmas came early!
I saw this short film at the University of Regina’s Living Skies Film Festival last year and now it is available online for everyone.

Directed by the talented Stephen Dunn and starring the always fantastic Gordon Pinsent, Life Doesn’t Frighten Me is a beautiful and funny short film about growing up.

Highly recommended viewing!
