Brett Kashmere

"We Do Not Remember, We Rewrite History"

Writer, curator, and media artist Brett Kashmere grew up playing hockey on the Canadian Prairie. He will present a screening of recent work, including: Valery's Ankle (2006), an essay film that databases examples from a history of of Canadian hockey to critique personal violence as international aggression: and Unfinished Passages (2005), a poetic landscape film which, for Kashmere is "a small monument to my great-grandfather Fred Elkington, prairie homesteader and giver of consciousness."
