British Film Institute, London, UK

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Images Festival and the 40th
anniversary of the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC), we
celebrate a multi-city touring project entitled Double Vision. The programs
are built around pairs of cities in Canada and abroad: Montreal and Paris,
London, Ontario and London, UK and Berlin, Germany and Kitchener, Ontario.

The programs taking place in the two Londons represent a selection of works
by artists that examine the idea of borders, place and migration both
externally in history and culture as well as internally in personal

Program One is more directly engaged with the outside world: personal
histories about immigration and homelands. Beyond the Usual Limits: Part
1(Deirdre Logue, 2005, video, 3min); Tree (Shelley Niro, 2006, video, 5min);
Yellow Pages (Ho Tam, 1994, video, 8min); Erotic Exotic (Atif Y Siddiqi,
1998, video, 19min); The Knot Between (Cherie Valentina Stocken, 2006,
video, 5min); Bombay the Hard Way (Karma Clarke Davis, 2001, video, 4min);
Squiggle (Oliver Husain, 2005, video, 21min)
Oliver Husain and Deirdre Logue in person!

Program Two pushes the boundaries of space, travel, appropriation and the
physical limits of the body to examine internal and external borders that
traverse identity, place, form and emotion. Boy (Francisca Duran); The Girl
from Moush (Garine Torossian); Unfinished Passages (Brett Kashmere); Mexico
(Mike Hoolboom and Steve Sanguedolce) and Cuentos de Mi Ninez (Tales from my
Childhood) (Francisca Duran)
