Lisa Birke's short film is at the Vancouver International Film Festival

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

Calendar girl video stillLisa Birke's work "Calendar Girls" is part of the Canadian Shorts series at the Vancouver International Film Festival.

"Calendar Girls" is a humorous exploration of the societal expectations of woman as aesthetic symbol and performing spectacle who is intrinsically at home in nature. It also plays with the obsession of self-documentation--a "playing to" the camera that currently takes the form of the selfie and the YouTube do-it-yourself music/dance video. The work was filmed unaccompanied by the artist in the the south-western area of Ontario, Canada over the course of a year from January to December 2014.
