Explorations of personal history, lineage and transition, laser-eye surgery, a nursing home. Six intimate and radical portraits provide a contemplative afternoon with Mom and Dad, Grandma and/or Grandpa.

Over {Past:Future} Sight dir. Christine Lucy Latimer

2006 | CA | 6 | 16mm | Manitoban premiere

This film uses video footage captured from the surgeon’s microscope during my father’s laser eye surgery. The footage is transferred to 16mm colour film, printed, edge-fogged and brown-toned. Clinical and impersonal video documentation transforms into an 
intimate hand-made celluloid exchange with my father’s watchful yet un-watching eye.

Water Washing Through Bones dir. Laura Marie Wayne

2013 | CA | 12 | 16mm on video | Canadian premiere

Water Washing Through Bones is a series of hushed, contemplative moments that reflect the existence of Eduardo Zamora (78), one of the last remaining elders of a dying 
mountain town in Cuba. Like Eduardo’s world, the film is sublime and hypnotic, offering a portrait of both solitude and the search to see oneself reflected in another. –LMW
