Women in Canada:A Trilogy


15 May 2007


Described as grotesquely humorous these three stories exemplify the hardships of life in early canada. Murder, disabled chickens and a cross dresser - everything you need for a true Canadian story. Shot on the Fisher Price pixelvision camcorder this film resembles a nightmare caught on a surveilance camera. The three narrators, one a disembodied computer voice, lead the viewer through this murky world of triumph, tragedy and whatever lies between. Each piece is approximately 4 minutes in length. Black and white. Sound.
