Video Canada

by Marc Paradis

Montreal International Film & Video Catalogue, 1984

Marc Paradis calls on Vancouver video artist Penelope Buitenhuis' Disposable to exemplify cinema's tendency to sensationalize images of war, violence and conflict. He identifies that video technology allows for introspective philosophical reflection and imagination, reflected in the catalogue selection of Canadian video work at the 1984 Montreal International Film and Video Festival.
