The last retrospective of Canadian experimental filmmaker Joyce Wieland in Montreal was held in the early 2000s. Her films are regularly shown in North American and European film institutes (they will be shown again at the Austrian Film Museum in November) and are all housed at the Cinémathèque québécoise. They not only display an exceptional plastic expressiveness, but also offer the viewer a singular female perspective on her era. She is also a filmmaker never interested in comfort zones, often working in collaboration (Hollis Frampton, Michael Snow), even exploring feature films (The Far Shore, to be rediscovered).
