Curated by Jenny Bisch
Funny, touching and profound, Jenny Bisch's selection of independent Canadian short films for the series, AM I LOSING MY MIND?, explores the way different disorders manifest themselves in life and visual art through the works of independent film and video artists.
Rather than exploring mental illness through documentary-style reportage, the films in this program represent experiences of mental disorder, in an attempt to cut through the stigma and reach toward an empathetic acknowledgement of others' inner lives. Because independent film and video is so often used to convey internal monologue in painstaking detail, the subject of psychological disorder is frequently touched upon, if not targeted outright in so many works.
