FILMS TO BE SCREENED
Echoes – 2015 / 6min / 35mm
A process-based, experimental film about loss, and the parallel between memory and the physical self: how it evolves, degrades and disintegrates.
Phantom of the Cinemateque – 2008 / 3.5min / DV
On the 25th anniversary of his employment, Dave Barber, the visionary-workaholic programmer of Winnipeg’s beloved Cinematheque, dies tragically in an avalanche of VHS tapes while working late to finish the programming calendar. His workaholic ghost returns to the land of the living to finish the calendar and haunt the Cinematheque by night.
Citizens Against Basswood – 2012 / 3min / Super 8
Found audio of concerned citizen(s) rallying to prevent the nuisance of new trees scheduled to be planted on their block in the 1980s.
The Magus – 2011 / 12min / HD
a multi-format, process-based experimental film that explores the root of artistic creation. The film documents visual artist, C. Graham Asmundson’s body of work over a rigorous six-month period.
Drawing Genisis – 2006 / 3min / Super 8
Drawing Genesis’ is a saturated visual compendium which traces C. Graham Asmundson’s performative gestures and visual residue. With the use of time lapse, still frames, lens obstruction, occult symbolism, subliminal imagery and blatant queer references; the film presents a ritual of artistic inspiration that invokes man’s primal forces.
Do the Blubb – 2010 / 1.5min / HD
While at a residency in Cologne, Germany, footage was shot for collaborative documentary about a local video artist, Wilda Wahnwitz. The footage was edited into a musical jawa cut-up that symbolizes Wilda’s video practice and her erratic personality.
Goths! On the Bus! – 2010 / 3.5min / Super 8
A couple of uber-goths ride the public transit to go to the mall and buy more lipstick.
Shot in sequence and in one take, for the 2009 One Take Super 8 Event at the WNDX Festival in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Film and Music by Karen & Jaimz Asmundson
