CANADA, 2011, 16MM>DIGITAL, 10 MIN
Situated at the geographic centre of Canada, Baker Lake, Nunavut is the only inland settlement in the Canadian Arctic. Fixing its gaze on this stark landscape, McIntyre's haunting and sparse film uses hand-wrought black-and-white 16mm film in a meditation on place and personal histories.
Lindsay McIntyre is a Canadian film artist of Inuk/settler of Scottish descent working primarily with analogue film. Her process-based works circle themes of portraiture, place, form, and personal histories with strong links to Canada’s North. Interested simultaneously in the apparatus of cinema, portraiture, representation, and personal histories, she bridges gaps in collective experience and remains dedicated to integrating theory and practice, form and content.
