Quotes about Patricia Gruben

"The extension of experimental interest to alternative forms of narrative, particularly in its association with particular feminist projects (the so-called New Narrative), is illustrated in the work of Vancouver's Patricia Gruben (Sifted Evidence, 1982 and Low Visibility, 1984), and in a different way in Kay Armatage's Storytelling (1983), in which the interlacing of seven storytelling performances reveals constants of story form to which she refuses narrative closure."
-- David Clandfield (source)

"Never at rest in a particular genre, moving through experimental, narrative, and documentary modes, [Patricia] Gruben's thematic interrogations always include an excavation of inherited forms and an interrogation of the limits of representation itself. Within this diversity of styles and subjects there are two common and interwoven elements: 'failed' quests and limited vision."
-- Susan Lord (source)

"Gruben, one of Canada's most respected avant-garde filmmakers, emigrated to Canada from Texas in 1972 and has taught film at Simon Fraser University since 1984."
-- Wyndham Wise (source)
