  • Gallery 1C03 finds its ‘legs’

    Humility can be hard to find. In a culture where women’s empowerment filters through individualism, presented in terms of “badass,” “girlboss” and the “she-conomy” – one might struggle to draw the line between “owning it” and self-obsession, between humility and self-effacement.

  • ‘We want to hear your stories’

  • ‘Still obscure as hell’

    For years, John Paizs has been a cult figure among cult figures. The filmmaker, a key creator in the early days of the Winnipeg Film Group, created work that was subversive, funny and visually inventive. His trio of half-hour shorts, The Three Worlds of Nick (1981 to ’84), and his first feature, Crime Wave (1985), are cutting-edge works of underground ’80s cinema. They’ve also been, until recently, really difficult to actually see.

  • Real recognize reel

  • Under the light of the Golden Boy’s behind

    “We sleep in the light of the Golden Boy’s ass,” the upcoming film Purple City states. 

    From dropping acid and gay hustling under yellow lights, to the mythological world of Greco-Roman lore, this new short film explores the hidden stories of the Golden Boy from the viewpoint of the filmmakers’ very own apartment across the street – where every night, they sleep in the golden glory of the statue’s illumination.
