“I have been attending the Toronto International Film Festival regularly since 1990. Aside from seeing films from all the world, it has given me a profound appreciation of the work of Canadian filmmakers. Due to my love for the work of filmmaker Guy Maddin, in 1991 I programmed the largest exhibition of works by the Winnipeg Film Group outside of Canada, THE MONDO MANITOBA MARATHON which I presented at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo, N.Y. as well as here in New Orleans. As part of the marathon, I produced a 30 minute video on the working relationship between filmmaker Guy Maddin and screen-writer George Toles entitled STRANGLED BY A LARGE INTESTINE. Then from 1995 to 1997, Zeitgeist presented an on-going series of films and performances entitled QUEERLY CANADIAN, which celebrated works and artists from Canada that personified both definitions of the word “queer”, meaning either “gay” or “odd”. Over the years Zeitgeist has hosted Canadian performers and filmmakers Bruce La Bruce, David Bateman, Michael Achtmann, and David Roche. We have screened hundreds of films from Canada, but we didn’t actively advertise that it was from Canada. That’s not enough. This work needs to be celebrated and exposed to new audiences. We need bigger!” – Rene Broussard, Zeitgeist Founder/Director
According to Canadian author and Prespyterian minister Tristan Emmanuel, Canada is looking to destroy America. In his new book, WARNED: CANADA’S REVOLUTION AGAINST FAITH, FAMILY AND FREEDOM THREATENS AMERICA, Emmanuel writes:
“Canada is being used as a staging ground to export radical liberalism and its being aimed right at America: everything from gay ‘marriage’ to polygamy to lowering the age of sexual consent and strengthening ‘human rights’ laws to protect prostitution. If it’s radically liberal, Canada is involved.”
Well if this is true, it’s all the more reason for Zeitgeist to celebrate and to help promote their agenda.
I’m not saying that Canada is trying to turn America Gay, but not only is Canada bigger than the U.S. (and we all know size does matter!), when you look at the map, it’s on top…
Opening February 14:
VIC + FLOW SAW A BEAR by Denis Cote. Winner 2013 Silver Bear (Alfred Bauer Prize) Berlin International Film Festival. Vic + Flow Saw a Bear is a darkly mysterious tale of two lesbian ex-cons, Victoria and Florence, trying to make a new life in the backwoods of Quebec. Seeking peace and quite, the couple slowly begin to feel under siege as Vic’s probation office keeps unexpectedly popping up and a strange woman in the neighborhood soon turns out to be an increasingly menacing shadow from Flo’s past. With it’s collection of complex and eccentric characters, unexpected plot twists and unsettling humor, French Canadian director Denis Cote (Curling, Bestiaire) has created an original film that is as once traumatizing, uplifting, and utterly breathless. This film screens as part of our ongoing series CANADA IS BIGGER THAN THE U.S.
