Citations de Anne Wheeler [en anglais]

« I began making films as an art form because of the power they wielded. Film was a political tool used for change. I was influenced by the early filmmakers at the National Film Board [of Canada], like Norman McLaren, Donald Brittain, and Colin Low, and cinema vérité auteurs such as Frederick Wiseman. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

« I think there's something wonderful with having a small crew and really the freedom to decide on the moment what you're going to shoot. When you get the big crews of 120 people, a lot of money, the more money, the less power. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

« I'm always astounded by filmmakers who make one film and then decide to make a feature. I was very, very cautious. Being female, I felt like I was representing half the human race. I didn't dare make a mistake. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

« In terms of subject matter, if you make one film about sisters, you've made all films about sisters. It seems if you come to a second film about sisterhood, or motherhood, or anything about the relationships that women have with other people, be they men or women, if you've made one film like that, it's considered already done. Whereas you can have many thousands of male buddy movies. But two in a row of friendships between women of whatever ages and orientation, it's called duplication. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

« There are no villains in my movies. There are just people who make mistakes. That's because I basically believe people are good. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

« The way I shoot, the actors have to put on a performance because every scene is a mini-play that has to be perfect. We rehearse it until I bring in the camera and then it starts to dance with the actors. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

« We [women film directors] need encouragement and we need exposure. It's not just that we make films about women. It's important to have a woman's perspective telling the story sometimes. »
-- Anne Wheeler (source)

Citation sur Anne Wheeler

« Anne Wheeler sait raconter des histoires simples et plus que les qualités esthétiques de ses films, c'est cette capacité qu'elle a de retenir son public en lui montrant tout simplement la vie sans la lui faire endosser à tout prix, qui en fait un auteur. En remettant en scène des personnages, des situations et des thèmes semblables d'un film à l'autre, en présentant des problèmes qui s'apparentent, Wheeler nous transporte en fin de compte dans un monde très bien cerné, un genre de monde en huis clos, auquel on serait tenté de l'identifier. »
-- Denyse Therrien (source)

Citations sur Anne Wheeler [en anglais]

« [Anne] Wheeler's realism is rooted in the conflict-resolution framework of her stories, emanating a strong social conscience, particularly in regards to the representation of women. Like true northern divas, her heroines resolve their conflicts through stoicism, courage and self-knowledge; rarely through violent operatic acts of martyrdom or submission. »
-- Kathleen Cummins (source)

« Anchoring her critique of colonial patriarchy in relationships between women and relationships between men, [Anne] Wheeler is able to employ, with justifiable ease, melodrama's major tropes. While the private sphere is certainly investigated in Wheeler's melodramas, she does not obey the genre's historically defined limits of hearth and home. [...] Wheeler opens the genre to race relations, homosexual and homoerotic narratives, feminist narratives of solidarity and flourishing; and in so doing, she devises a radically liberal vernacular for the Canadian imaginary. »
-- Susan Lord (source)

« [Anne] Wheeler has emerged as one of Canada's finest storytellers, blending the social conscience of an NFB documentary with a firm grip on story structure. »
-- Wyndham Wise (source)
