Beautiful review written by Daze Jefferies of Saltwater Stories about our St. John’s premiere of FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN: https://saltwaterstories.net/2017/05/16/push-and-pull-of-memories-the-st-johns-premiere-of-rozalind-macphails-from-the-river-to-the-ocean/
My hand-processed super 8 film, “Leave a Note” from our audio-visual project, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN will be screening at the Nickel Independent Film Festival on June 21st. Thanks to the St. John’s International Women’s Festival for including my film in their list of “16 women-directed films to see” at the festival: https://www.womensfilmfestival.com/blog/2/17-women-directed-films-to-see-at-the-nickel-independent-film-festival
I used my Super 8 camera in Wilmington, North Carolina during my Cucalorus Festival Artist Residency and hand-processed three rolls of film with the help of Andre Silva and Mariah Kramer at UNCW Film Studies. Thanks to Dan Brawley in 2014 for giving me his precious rolls of film! “Now Accepting Food Stamps” was my reaction to feeling heartbroken about the poverty and racism I was witnessing down South. With all that’s been going on in our current world climate, it feels right to share this film. https://theovercast.ca/a-sneak-peak-of-rozalind-macphails-ecma-winning-audio-visual-project

My heart is still bursting from yesterday’s performance/looping workshop I gave to 200 students at Harbour View High School for the #ECMA2017 – TD Soundwaves program. Thanks to Shelley Poirier for taking this live video footage of me performing “Now Accepting Food Stamps”, a film I created for FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN with a Super 8 camera and by hand processing the film in buckets while I was at the Cucalorus Film Festival artist residency: https://youtu.be/EMYmRdjrZBc

I’ve arrived in Wilmington, North Carolina and I can’t stop smiling about this year’s Cucalorus Film Festival. I’ll be performing the U.S. premiere of FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN on November 12th at Bourgie Nights and most of the filmmakers will be in attendance for the Q&A! I perform the entire soundtrack for the project live to the films.
