A psychic's prediction of impending disaster underlies this experimental meditation set on the marshes of Sackville, New Brunswick. A Super 8, 16 mm and video hybrid, Marshlands moves elliptically from a present steeped in memory to an uncertain future.

Un médium prédit un désastre imminent: voilà le point de départ de cette méditation expérimentale se déroulant dans les marais de Sackville, au Nouveau-Brunswick. Tourné en Super 8, en 16mm et en vidéo, Marécage se déplace de façon elliptique, d'un présent enveloppé de souvenir vers un futur incertain.
