Free admission, seats available at the door, all are welcome.

In keeping with the cinematic genre typical of IMAX films—the larger-than-life landscape that forms an outer world beyond the limits of the human sensorium—Outer Worlds is an extra-ordinary program that features five experimental IMAX films by Canada’s leading artists: Oliver Husain, Lisa Jackson, Kelly Richardson, Michael Snow, and Leila Sujir.

Each of the films explores expanded cinema through different ecologies of the non-human: the forest, lichen, snails, water, and sky. Proposing different worlds of experience and distinct grammars of immersion through a meeting with the camera, the films imagine common worlds by reflecting upon the exigencies of intercultural and interspecies communication, a task that has taken on great urgency in the 21st century as we grapple with how to adapt to the ecological realities brought about by anthropogenic climate change.

The program features a new sound remix of Michael Snow’s final film, Cityscape.

The screening is curated by Janine Marchessault.
