Jean Pierre Lefebvre is one of the most inventive and prolific of
all Canadian filmmakers. From the sixties to the eighties, his
films were as much celebrated at international film festivals as
are the films of Atom Egoyan today.
More recently, Lefebvre has explored the creative potential of
video as a visual medium. In Jean Pierre Lefebvre: Vid?aste ,
Peter Harcourt provides an overview of Lefebvre's films and an
incisive consideration of his five-part video project L'age des
Images (1993-95) . Two essays by Lefebvre, one a personal account
of the influence of Qu?b?cois films on his work, the other an
argument for a "national cinema", along with a recent interview
with him round out this timely look at a director of great
distinction and emotive power.
