Toronto: Images Festival, 2009

The author writes about over two decades of work from filmmaker Louise Bourque. He focuses on themes of inaccessible houses, family and affective memories. These themes are doubly expressed by aesthetic effects, especially Bourque's theatrical style and her manipulation of the materiality of film.
