The Ant-ernationale

  • Video for "Better Worlds" conference, Kingston, 2002

The Ant-ernationale is an elegy for my youthful, utopian dreams of a free, democratic, and socialist Canada. I made it for a conference about utopias, called "Better Worlds", organized by the Agnes Etherington Gallery in Kingston, Ontario.

The soprano is Denise Williams.

The video footage was shot by Mike Connelly, at the location of the River of Books installation in the Cedarvale ravine in Toronto, 2000.
