The Films of Roger Wilson
dir. Roger Wilson
Canada, 120 minutes

Café Ex: 2012-2013
Club SAW, Thursday, December 6, 2012, 7:00 pm
For over a decade, Ottawa filmmaker Roger Wilson has been producing some of the most daring and inventive experimental films in Canada. Exploring the physical properties of celluloid – through optical printing, hand processing, allowing celluloid to decay/develop while buried underground – and incorporating those explorations in the films themselves, Wilson, like all true avant-garde artists, pushes the boundaries of image construction and investigates how moving images make meaning. With its perceptive approaches to ideas of landscape, sound and silence, memory, and identity, Wilson’s is a fascinating and compelling body of work.

Doors open at 7pm. Admission is pay-what-you-can. 

Roger Wilson will attend the screening to introduce and discuss his films.
