Redefining Intimacy - Nov 26 to Dec 2

Goodnight Goodnight Mackenzie Reid Rostad

Films A to Z

From wristwatches to stock market tickers, society is ruled by time despite all attempts to control it. The same goes for the energy we rely on for our lifestyles: we tend to think of the one as inexhaustible and the other as eternal. Our brightly lit cities hide the stars from us, making us forget cosmic movements and natural phenomena that govern the Earth. Mackenzie Reid Rostad explores all this in this meditative essay. From Montreal to the Manicouagan hydroelectric complex, he films big things that, resituated in space and time, are revealed to be tiny and ephemeral. Bemused, he calls into question the stubbornness of humanity, possibly as a way to salve his personal pain from a breakup. Because, after all, the film is also a wonderful love letter. (Apolline Caron-Ottavi)
