Paradise

Canada, 1984 (MIFF 1985)

Director: Ishu Patel

Colour, lush and ripe, swells the screen. The hum and trill of summer shimmer in the air. This is paradise, brimming with birdsong and blossom. Innovative mixed-media techniques consorted with the human imagination have produced this visual enchantment.
