Reframing the Montreal Massacre: a media interrogation

Maureen Bradley

1995, 26:00 minutes, colour/B&W, English


The Montreal Massacre touched a deep nerve in millions of Canadians, making it an ideal point of departure for a critical examination of how the media's framing of events creates meaning in our everyday lives. This tape uses a hybrid, dynamic style of video art, and documentary, ideal for the "Much Music" generation. This video can be used for courses dealing with gender studies, media literacy, ethics and journalism.
