REEL ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL

Bashir Yerex Presentation Space
401 Richmond St. W. Toronto
Concluding a jam-packed day of panels, discussions and screening, I will be giving an Artist Talk and screening with Lulu Wei.
Midi Onodera is an artist, a filmmaker, an innovator, and an inveterate experimenter. Flowing seamlessly from toy cameras to high end editing formats, her works engage with technologies in playful ways to produce documents of cultural and political critique that are dead serious. We’ve selected works exploring the variety of production platforms, technologies, and presentation formats used by this prolific and poetic artist of both the analog and the digital. From the early The Displaced View (1988), through the experimental shorts Slightseer (2001) and Nobody Knows (2002), ending with her more recent works that reside on the WWW the coyotes must see the moon (2017), The Outsider (2019), 68 Trace Decay Theory (2019), and Travel (2019).– Lisa Steele, Vtape Artistic Director, September 2019
(The programme of Midi Onodera work was selected by Wanda Vanderstoop, Vtape Director of Distribution and Lisa Steele, Vtape Artistic Director.)
