Victoria Marks four dances for the camera by Victoria Marks( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Outside In is a witty and affectionate mix of trails, tracks blue skies, and hidden surprises. The film leaves a lasting impression of continual movement; a seamless stream of images, imprints, and revelations. Mothers and Daughters ... examines the potency and sensuality of the relationship between mother and daughter. Working with 12 pairs of mothers and daughters, many of whom have never performed before, the film looks at the unique and the universal from a micro and macro perspective. Men ... is performed by seven elderly men residing in Alberta, Canada. The theme of the piece is mortality where the ephemerality of human lives is set against the permanence of the Canadian Rockies. This film is a living requiem, a celebration of lives well-lived. Touch ... is a film in which four radically different couples perform the same sequence of touch. Two people tenderly and slowly touch one another, fingers and hands, faces and heads. Their touch, shot in extreme close-up, is like a form of reverence, a prayer."--Container
