This set brings together for the first time the film works of Joyce Wieland (1931-1998), largely regarded as one of Canada´s most influential and important artists. The collection includes sixteen shorts and two feature films made from new high-definition digital transfers.
A multi-disciplinary artist who produced work in a wide variety of media, Wieland´s intelligent and irreverent explorations of female sexuality, domestic life, ecology and Canadian nationalism put her at the forefront of feminist practice. Wieland made her mark in the film underground in New York in the 1960s, where she was associated with structural filmmakers such as Michael Snow and Hollis Frampton. While her films employ materialist formal strategies, the irony and socio-political content of her work sets apart from her structuralist compatriots, as does her exploration of narrative.
This collection will be of vital interest to film and art-lovers alike, as well as those involved in the fields of film studies and production, visual arts, art history and women´s studies.

Volume 2 brings together six shorts made during the time Joyce Wieland and (the husband) Michael Snow lived in New York. Formally experimental yet intimate, these films show the influence of the New York avant garde but diverge from structuralism in their exploration of socio-political content, domestic space and narrative experimentation.
