From abstractions to examinations of identity and memory through subversions of melodrama and glimpses of the travelogue and documentary, the works in this program skirt the genres of which they are most representative. The films and videos are message-driven, full of social commentaries as well as personal narratives.

Des abstractions aux examens de l’identité et de la mémoire par des subversions de mélodrame et des aperçus de récit de voyage et de documentaire, les œuvres de ce programme éludent les genres qu’elles représentent le plus. Les films et les vidéos mettent l’accent sur leurs messages, plein de commentaires sociaux et de récits personnels.
