Extraits: Short Films by Rhayne Vermette

Saturday October 7
Director: Rhayne Vermette
2023 / 62min / DCP

A collection of 9 shorts, produced by Vermette between 2012 and ’17, each of which shows the filmmaker refining and revising the new and strikingly unique collage-derived cinematic vocabulary which has marked her as a pioneer in the world of experimental film. Highlights include 2012’s J. Werier, a portrait of the eponymous Winnipeg warehouse store and the broken film projectors it houses; 2014’s Black Rectangle, a cinematic response to Kazimir Malevich’s 1915 painting Black Square; 2015’s Extraits d’une Famille, a Super 8 memory piece exploring Vermette’s family history and the unreliability of remembering; would-be architect-cum-filmmaker Vermette’s twinned reflections on the work and legacy of architect Carlo Mollino in Turin (2016) and Domus (2017); and 2016’s Les Châssis de Lourdes, an unconventional survey of Vermette’s childhood home which the artist calls “a falsified genealogy of image making.”
