Death by VHS: New Cinematic Discoveries from Winnipeg, Manitoba
Monday, August 30, 2010 at 7:30PM
Presented by DIM Cinema
Pacific Cinémathèque
1131 Howe St.
Vancouver, BC

A long, rich history of lo-budget inventiveness is woven into the civic consciousness of Winnipeg, Manitoba, the birthplace of K-Tel, Hunky Bill’s Perogie Maker, and the Green Garbage Bag. Countless Winnipeg artists have utilized the same Do-It-Yourself spirit in their practice, speaking to tradition as well as environmental necessity. Enriched with strange humour, hand-crafted experimentation and lo-fi/high-tec conundrums, the films and videos in this program are testaments to an aesthetic movement that is wholeheartedly Winnipeg’s own.

We are proud to present films from our beloved bargain-hungry municipality.
