“Visually intoxicating…” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, The Reader (Chicago)

This DVD compilation brings together thirteen films by iconoclastic Québecois filmmaker François Miron, made over the course of 24 years. Without belonging to any artistic school, Miron has forged a unique style, one that combines a great variety of techniques and materials, including found footage, live action, animation, collage, and flicker. In bravura and often hallucinatory feats of optical printing, Miron cracks open images of American pop culture, consumerism, and conservatism, subsuming them in an experience of sensory overload.
