“Vision is really a controlled hallucination.”
– Dr. M. Harris, School of Psychology Birmingham University

Some people say that cinema in its present state is on the verge of dying. But cinema is much more than just the magical chemistry concealed within this format. It is imagination, faith, and suspension of belief. It is our collective past, a reflection of ourselves. Without this history we are doomed to repeat the past. Without our continued thirst to quench our vision we are simply sightseers in a “global image economy”.

Commissioned by Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto for their 20th Anniversary
