BACKBONE: EARLY VANCOUVER EXPERIMENTAL CINEMA, 1967-1981

DIRECTOR: RICHARD MARTIN - BRITISH COLUMBIA (VANCOUVER, BC)

(DOC) From the mid-1960s through the 1970s, Vancouver, BC, was an international hub for experimental film and the source of an enduring body of work that resonates today. Martin’s documentary examines some of the key works of the era, offering perspective on the social and cultural context of the time and the varied influences of psychedelic pop, structuralism, experimental drama, and poetic cinema. Featuring interviews from members of Vancouver’s cultural community—including the artists themselves—the film offers a primer for appreciating a program of key works curated by Martin, all of which reveal vibrant visions. Martin’s BACKBONE (2013) (60 mins.) will be followed by Gary Lee-Nova’s STEEL MUSHROOMS (1967), Al Razutis’s LUMIÈRE’S TRAIN (ARRIVING AT THE STATION) (1979), Sturla Gunnarsson’s A DAY MUCH LIKE THE OTHERS (1977), Chris Gallagher’s SEEING IN THE RAIN (1981), Patricia Gruben’s THE CENTRAL CHARACTER (1977), David Rimmer’s CANADIAN PACIFIC 1 (1974), Tom Braidwood’s BACKBONE (1972), Peter Lipskis’s ECLIPSE (1979), Kirk Tougas’s FAR FROM QUEBEC (LOIN DU QUÉBEC) (1971), and Michael McGarry’s IN BLACK AND WHITE (1979). (Total program running time: 156 mins.)
