Look! We Have Come Through!

Canada, 1978 (MIFF 1980, Programme 41)

Director: R. Bruce Elder

"The film begins with a section that refuses to successfully come together. A number of forms traditional to the experimental cinema appear to be developing, but the film seems to refuse to settle into any one of these forms. Since the film is about 'getting started again', the film finally discovers its form as a construction of movements. It culminates in a passage of exhilarated, even if somewhat frenzied, activity.". (R. Bruce Elder)
