Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art presents a video installation by Elle Flanders (Toronto) and Tamira Sawatzky (Winnipeg) (Public Studio), produced by Anita Lee for the National Film Board. This powerful installation offers a unique chronicle of lives rarely seen and voices seldom heard. Composed of a series of individual journeys, and shot using stop-motion animation that captures the landscape frame by frame, the work is presented on three large double-sided walls. Road Movie is the result of year-long travels, with passage through segregated West Bank roads, during which the artists met a cross-section of people living in the region. An episodic odyssey through haunting landscapes, Road Movie also features an evocative soundscape created by acclaimed audio artist Anna Friz.
This event is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
