Canadian Experimental Films & Videos of the 1990s
by Ingrid Jenkner
This catalogue documents a series of films and videos programmed by Gerda Cammaer for Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, and screened at the Nova Scotia College of art and Design in March 2002. Many of the works made their Halifax debut in this series, which also introduces Gerda Cammaer as a newcomer to the local film scene.
A filmmaker herself, Ms. Cammaer lives and breathes film. She also teaches film studies, and brings eloquent, original insights to questions of film aesthetics. Her curatorial focus on time as a theme and formal element makes Changing Times a fitting sequel to the Joyce Wieland film retrospective presented by the gallery in 2000.
Changing Times, Time Changes was made possible by financial support from the Canada Council for the Arts. N.S.C.A.D. very generously provided a venue for the screenings. It has been an intensive and pleasurable education to have worked with Gerda Cammaer, and to have joined her crusade in the cause of experimental film.
