by Peter Goddard

The Toronto Star, Apr. 3, 2008

Goddard highlights Nelson Henricks as part of 21 Images Festival's Artist Spotlight. Hendricks has been important in influencing a number of young experimental filmmakers and is also responsible for what is considered to be one of the greatest Canadian shorts of all time, Conspiracy of Lies. Often concerned with numbers, systems and order, Hendricks states that while growing up in Alberta he drew much of his inspiration from music videos.
