"Respected artists such as Doris McCarthy, Judy Chicago, Joyce Weiland, and Jane Ash Poitras - in combination with curators, art historians, and the Guerrilla Girls, the "terrorists" of the art world - discuss the dearth of women's artwork in major galleries and examine the poignant social history of women in the fine arts - a story of suppression, marginalization, and omission"--Container

"This set brings together for the first time the film works of Joyce Wieland (1931-1998), largely regarded as one of Canada's most influential and important artists. The collection includes sixteen shorts and two feature films made from new high-definition digital transfers. A multi-disciplinary artist who produced work in a wide variety of media, Wieland's intelligent and irreverent explorations of female sexuality, domestic life, ecology and Canadian nationalism put her at the forefront of feminist practice. Wieland made her mark in the film underground in New York in the 1960s, where she was associated with structural filmmakers such as Michael Snow and Hollis Frampton. While here films employ materialist formal strategies, the irony and socio-political content of her work sets her apart from her structuralist compatriots, as does her exploration of narrative. This collection will be of vital interest to film- and art-lovers alike, as well as those involved in the fields of film studies and production, visual arts, art history and women's studies."--Container

Joyce Wieland is one of Canada's most exciting and innovative artists, one who has worked in virtually every artistic medium. With reason and passion in equal parts, her political agenda includes feminism, Canadian nationalism, female sexuality and ecology. This film combines expressionistic uses of cinematography and sound to explore Wieland's work

1933. The film offers a street scene shot in New York City in the late 1960s from a loft window on the second floor. This shot, filmed mostly in fast motion but occasionally slowed to normal speed, is repeated in its entirety 10 times and is accompanied by dissonant raucous music, evoking the silent-film-like humour in fast motion human movement

Solidarity. A film on the Dare strike of the early 1970s. Hundreds of feet and legs, milling, marching and picketing with the word "solidarity" superimposed on the screen. The soundtrack is an organizer's speech on the labour situation. Like her films "Rat Life and Diet in North America," "Pierre Vallieres" and "Reason Over Passion," "Solidarity" combines a political awareness, an aesthetic viewpoint and a sense of humour unique in Wieland's work

Barbara's blindness. "There is no one named Barbara to be found; a pair of mysterious blind-person's hands (looking suspiciously like Wieland's) make only one cameo appearance to 'read' us the title; yet these seemingly incongruous elements provide the perfect introduction to the ironic humour of the film itself. The main source of the film seems to be an old grade-school morality-movie on the appreciation of eyesight, starring golden-haired Mary, who finds herself temporarily blind, and a leaden-voiced narrator, who finds himself our unwitting straight-man. The filmmakers re-edited this curiosity and intercut it with other stock footage of disasters, agricultural techniques, and monster movies, to create a very different object lesson on the nature of vision."--B.

"Le film, réalisé sur plusieurs jours avec une caméra Bolex de location, consiste en un zoom avant très lent sur une durée de trois-quarts d'heure environ. Il s'ouvre sur un plan large de l'atelier-loft de l'artiste à New York et se resserre, par petites avancés progressives, sur un espace situé entre deux fenêtres au centre de l'image. Une photographie de vagues accrochée au mur à cet endroit finit par remplir totalement le cadre, faisant ainsi disparaître tout l'espace qui vient d'être traversé. Durant ce temps, différents évènements épars ont lieu dans la pièce : des hommes installent une étagère sous le conseil d'une femme, deux jeunes femmes viennent prendre le café en écoutant Strawberry Fields à la radio, un homme entre et s'effondre au sol, une jeune femme entre la pièce, voit le cadavre hors champ et appelle un dénommé Richard lui demandant de venir. Ces petits évènements sont éloignées dans le temps, mais durant les autres moments différents éléments interviennent perturbant la continuité : des gélatines de couleur sont tenues devant l'objectif, la lumière change (la temporalité du tournage étant différente de celle du déroulement) passant parfois du jour à la nuit sans transition, et les tonalités de l'image changent, car Snow a utilisé volontairement plusieurs marques et types de pellicule. La bande son, naturaliste au commencement du film, est remplacé (après la fermeture d'une des fenêtres par un personnage) par une longueur d'onde allant du plus grave au plus aigu. Ce son peut rendre le film éprouvant à regarder en entier". --Site wikipédia, consulté le 24 avril 2014

Wieland's most important and complex nationalist statement, La raison avant la passion, is a playful, penetrating exploration of the landscape and mindscape of Canada. Taken from Pierre Elliot Trudeau's assertion, "Reason over passion -- that is the theme of all my writing," the film is an impressionistic train and car trip from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. Throughout the film, the letters of the title are varied randomly, as in an anagram, by a computer. The first part is dominated by the colour green; the second, orange; and the third, white. Made in three parts with a prelude, La raison avant la passion is largely a hymn to the beauty of the country but it also raises questions about cultural identity

"Set in 1918 Ontario, ... employs both melodramatic conventions and experimental formal strategies to tell the tale of Eulalie, a Québecoise woman, and her love affair with Tom McLeod (a thinly veiled fictionalization of Canadian painter Tom Thompson). Married to a Toronto engineer, Eulalie finds life with him oppressive. Together she and Tom escape to the wilds of Northern Ontario, where they enjoy a brief idyll before being hunted down by her jealous husband. In its narrative and symbolism, The Far Shore deftly explores tensions between women and men, nature and industry, French and English, and art and commerce."--Container

Set in the year 1919, this film tells the story of Eulalie, a Québécoise who consented to move to puritan Toronto out of love for her engineer husband, Ross.

Tom leaves for a time. When next they meet, Eulalie is on a picnic with her husband and some friends, Tom on the opposite shore of the lake. They meet and, giving way to their passion, are left to cope with their feelings for each other
