A visionary who consistently explored new styles and approaches in her art and films, Joyce Wieland grappled with nationalism, feminism, environmentalism and spirituality. The Films of Joyce Wieland brings together essays by Canadian and American theorists about the artists and her work. It includes a never-before-published interview between Wieland and experimental filmmaker Hollis Frampton and a comprehensive annotated bibliography of the film literature on Wieland.

Published by Cinematheque Ontario. Distributed in Canada by Wilfrid Laurier University Press. Distributed outside Canada by Indiana University Press.

Editorial Reviews

''Joyce Wieland radically reworked cinema. A cosmopolitan nationalist and wry social critic, Wieland was a major contributor to the astonishing mid-century developments of North American avant-garde moviemaking. She deserves a significant place in film history, and this sterling volume of essays, comprehensive and revelatory, promises to deliver this to her.''
