Cinema Project Presents: CARTE BLANCHE du CANADA: BRETT KASHMERE in PersonApril 24th 2007 | 7:30 PMNew American Art Union [922 S.E..Ankeny] (address suppressed) just returned from the Images Festival in Toronto last week, were we spent a lot of time watching tons of Canadian work, we can assuredly say you are all for a treat at this one-night only screening! Cinema Project rolls out the red carpet to welcome guest curator and filmmaker Brett Kashmere to present this special program. Carte Blanche du Canada magnifies cracks in the friendly Northern façade: Isolation, loneliness, melancholia, the dissipation of rural life, the fall of civilization and the end of civilized play are displayed in this program of Canadian film et video. Brett will also be screening his newest video essay, Valery’s Ankle, at the PDX Fest this Sunday.When Canadians Attack by Brett Kashmere [2004, video, color, sound, 4 min.]Very Nice, Very Nice by Arthur Lipsett [1961, 16mm, b&w, sound, 7 min]Distance is Relative by Amber Goodwyn [2004, 16mm, b&w, silent, 5 min]still | move by Michael Rollo [2003, video, color/b&w, silent, 11 min]unfinished passages by Brett Kashmere [2005, video, b&w, sound 17 min]buffalo lifts by Christina Battle [ 2004, 16mm, color, silent, 3 min]Colonel Canuck by Jake Kennedy [2003, video, color, sound, 3 min]Last Days of Contrition by Richard Kerr [1988, 16mm, b&w, sound, 35 min]
