Image and Territory

2007_01_17egoyan.jpgThe Sweet Hereafter. Exotica. Ararat. Where The Truth Lies. What is the link that ties all these films together? Atom Egoyan, of course.
If you consider yourself a cinephile, an Atom Egoyan fan, a lover of Canadian cinema, or all of the above, then we’d suggest that tomorrow night – January 18 – you make your way over to Camera (1028 Queen W) for the launch of a new book: Image and Territory: Essays on Atom Egoyan, which is edited by Monique Tschofen and Jennifer Burwell, both associate professors in Ryerson’s department of English.
The book is a collection of essays and interviews from “leading film and media scholars (that) unpacks the central arguments, tensions, and paradoxes of his work and traces their evolution. It also locates his work within larger intellectual and artistic currents in order to consider how he takes up and answers critical debates in politics, philosophy, and aesthetics. Most importantly, it addresses how his work is both intellectually engaging and emotionally moving.” Heavy stuff, no doubt.
The launch begins at 7pm, is scheduled to run until 9, and will feature screenings of selected Egoyan short films. No word yet if the man himself will be present.

    Exotica is this week’s Free Friday Film (7:00 at Innis Town Hall).

  • Ben

    I thought he was always present at Camera :P

  • The Explosively Talented Christopher Bird

    Yes, but what if I’m a lover of Canadian film and feel that the best way to support it is to show as little support for Atom Egoyan as humanly possible, eh? What then?
