Joyce Wieland’s The Far Shore

March 9, 2017, 9pm
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

1976, 1h, 45 min. 16mm, colour, sound

Set in 1918 Ontario. Eulalie, a Quebecoise, marries a Toronto engineer but finds life with him oppressive. She falls in love with Tom, a painter who is an acquaintance of her husband's and, with him, escapes briefly to Northern Ontario before they are hunted down by her jealous husband.

"For something like two decades, Joyce Wieland - the Toronto painter, filmmaker, quiltmaker and lay ecologist - has been creating an individual sensibility and then displaying it, piece by piece, in the various art forms that have suited her purposes. In The Far Shore, her feature film, she articulates that sensibility in detail for the first time... The Far Shore has energy, ambition, vision and a marvelously confident sense of itself." - Marshall Delaney
