This Might Be Good

Description du film [en anglais] :
« In 2000, in honour of the 25th anniversary of the Toronto International Film Festival, 10 preeminent Canadian filmmakers were asked to create short films. Staying true to her thematic preoccupation with artists, audiences and their relationship, Rozema's contribution was This Might Be Good, a six-minute wordless, experimental piece about hope -- the hope of audiences, actors and filmmakers who gather around films at festivals. »

Notes sur This Might Be Good

Citation de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« A festival is a concentration of hope. Audiences hungering for something startlingly new, famously familiar or just plain 'good'. Actors hoping their well conceived sincerity and ritual entrances have that special glow. Press and critics poised to love or hate lucidly. And proud, desperate filmmakers looking for that little blessing on their latest self-projection. All squeezing together for a few days, in a few rooms wondering whether this will truly be the perfect place at the perfect time. Of course, it rarely is. Mostly it's just a collection of almosts. Delicious, shared almosts. »

Citation sur This Might Be Good [en anglais]

« With textured black-&-white cinematography by Andre Pienaar and powerful virtually silent performances by [Sarah] Polley and Don McKellar, This Might Be Good is a haunting presentation of the deceptions and yet the wonder of cinematic art. »
