Details

In Michelle Mohabeer’s films and videos, form and content are inextricably connected. Re-working the transformational film aesthetics of “third cinema,” Mohabeer’s experimental documentaries blend archival footage with personal memory, infusing each work with a signature pastiche of political consciousness, poetics and performance.

“I recommend these films for researchers working on feminist theory, and the history of feminism, especially those with an interest in Canada and Canadian political identity or Caribbean/South American identity. These films will also be of use in the upper-level women’s studies classroom, especially courses in feminist theory.” - Ciara Healy, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for EMRO (full review at http://libweb.lib.buffalo.edu/emro/emroDetail.asp?Number=3492)
