LETTERS FROM VANCOUVER (1973)

by Kirk TOUGAS
1973 / 16mm / color-b&w / sound and silent / 1S / 66' 00

LETTERS FROM VANCOUVER (1973) comprise two films, made at the same time, that share a common interest in “the medium is the message” (McLuhan), and form a reflexive, self-referential enquiry into the film medium itself.

Together, THE POLITICS OF PERCEPTION and THE FRAMING OF PERCEPTION form a meditation on our audio/visual creation, bearer of information and culture, meaning and representation. It is a medium with extraordinary powers, able to evoke the deepest feelings of love and loss, anger and fear, laughter and thoughtfulness, yet of great fragility, fading with time, precarious on a perforated strip of celluloid.
