A retrospective of eight years experimental films by Richard Kerr, who teaches in Concordia’s Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, are being shown at the Cinématique québécoise.

Kerr’s work is in the tradition of tradition-breaking filmmakers Michael Snow, Bruce Elder and Joyce Wieland. Among the films being shown are McLuhan, Never Confuse Movement with Action, Human Tragedy on a Grand Scale, The Last Days of Contrition, Cruel Rhythm, and The Willing Voyeur.

Kerr’s latest film is I Was a Strong Man Until I Left Home: Pictures of Sound, described as “a digitalized sketch of images of light and landscape that has stronger ties to drawing and sketching than to cinematography.”

The screenings started yesterday and end on Sunday. The Cinémateque québécoise is at 335 de Maisonneuve Blvd. E. For a schedule, please call 842-9763 or consult www.cinematheque.qc.ca.
