Audio Documentary Listening Sessions : Memory

Unframing Documentary presents sound works to be experienced in the darkness of Cinéma Moderne. For the second year running, cinema is taking a visual sabbatical. To tell stories through sound is to access an endlessly evocative power, akin to that of literature, and one that offers unprecedented creative freedom. As Orson Welles once said: “on the radio, the screen is larger than in the cinema.”

This program is produced in collaboration with Jenny Cartwright.

In this program, three sound creations tackle the theme of memory. What remains of the places and people we love once they’ve disappeared or been transformed?

In this program :

Un pays qu'on connait à peine - directed by Roméo Lefèvre

12:00 Sky Hopinka Installation : The Island Weights
Sky Hopinka Installation : The Island Weights

This two-channel film by artist Sky Hopinka is based on the tale of the four water spirits known as Island Weights. In the creation story of Ho-Chunk, the artist’s home nation, the spirits are placed at the Earth’s cardinal points, ensuring that its rotation is not chaotic. Ho-Chunk, now known as Wisconsin, translates as “People of the Great Voice” and stretches from Red Banks to Trempealeau, and from Minneapolis to Milwaukee. The film is divided into 5 parts — Wijirawaséwe (Island Weights), yoiréreginarere (the west), rek’úhuhíra (the south), h??boguominàgara (the east), siniwagúregin?gere (the north) — and follows an individual as he recounts his journey along the boundaries of Ho-Chunk lands. Visually, the viewer is drawn from the tumultuous waves of the Mississippi to serene forests, tranquil lakes, enormous shopping malls, earthen effigies and Ho-Chunk relics. The narrator is not only looking for the spirits, but also wishes to honor them.

The presentation of this installation is made possible with the support of OBORO - Centre d'artistes and is part of the retrospective Sky Hopinka : Redefining Potential Territories.
