Although obscure in this country, Joyce Wieland remains a towering Canadian artist whose work encompasses several media. As an avant-garde filmmaker of the structural school, her technique included the physical manipulation of film stock, and her themes reflected a strong feminist consciousness. In one of those felicitous twists of fate, she married Michael Snow, another master experimentalist, and lived with him in New York throughout the 1960s. Los Angeles Filmforum handpicked some of Wieland's best short films for a rare retrospective, offering local audiences a chance to get familiar with her work. Laura Howes, executive director of the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre, will introduce the screening.
