Transe Atlantique

Chris Campbell

One of the highlights of my time in Moncton (those 4 nights and 5 days last month) was meeting some of the people from the place and going to an event outside of the conference. Moncton has a great arts community and a great cultural centre in the Centre Culturel Aberdeen. On Friday night they featured a screening, "Transe Atlantique" as part of "Vidéo Cité" which consisted of a workshop on one day and the screenings on the following evening. It was a great event in a great facility. The event was generally coordinated by Tam-ca Vo-van and Jason St-Laurent with the screening curated by Stefan St-Laurent. It gave me a second chance to see Andrea Cooper's "Starring" TV commercial and "Starring Part 2" again. The neatest new thing in the screening was a video called "Dreaming" by Donna Wawzonek (of Struts Gallery). It consisted of visuals of scratching lottery tickets while dreams were recounted... one involving the Kids in the Hall... I identified with that one. Donna's video was produced as part of the first annual "In Like a Lion Video Marathon". The other cool thing was that I got to chat with Jason, who I'd first met in Ottawa at the IFVA AGM last year. Sometimes it seems like the world is getting smaller. I stayed there chatting with Jason, Tam-ca, Véronique Couillard, Páll, and Arnfinnur until the place closed down. That's why I was very, very tired on Saturday morning... but it was a great time.
