Legal Memory

by Mark Harris

The Georgia Straight, June 4, 1993, p. 19

Harris reviews Legal Memory and uses the description: like most video art these days, Legal Memory is formally self-concious agitprop. He believes the archival footage of Diefenbaker is well-chosen and embodies the ideas of Cold War conformity. Harris writes that the film is interesting but leaves certain aspects of the Leo Mantha case unexplored.
