Heaven or Montreal

Dennis Day and Ian Middleton

1997, 05:30 minutes, colour, english


Reflecting on the premature death of a young dancer and artist, Heaven or Montréal points to unfinished ideas, creating "outlines" of lost energy and imagination. As a finale, it summons all its desperation and asks for silence to speak and stillness to dance. Ian Middleton, its co-author died in 1993 of AIDS related causes.
