Archive/Counter-Archive is delighted to host the Toronto book launch of Andrew Burke’s HINTERLAND REMIXED, featuring a special screening of rare and unusual films from 1970s Canada!
The 1970s sometimes feel like a forgotten decade in Canada. Hinterland Remixed challenges this, looking to 1970s Canadian film and television for examples of the utopian and unusual, investigating the unpredictable operations of national cultural memory and its relation to the audiovisual archive. From Michael Snow's experimental landscape film La Région Centrale to SCTV's satirical skewering of network television, this book asks key questions about nation, nostalgia, media, and memory.
Following the film programme will be a conversation with Andrew Burke led by Geoff Pevere (Program Director, Rendez-Vous With Madness Film Festival).
Light refreshments will be served and copies of HINTERLAND REMIXED will be available for purchase!
