Notes about Emigrante


Quote about Emigrante

"[Moira Simpson's] first solo film, Emigrante (1979), was sponsored by the B.C. Multicultural Department and it's about racism in Canada—a lively musical collage of racist attitudes expressed as voices over sympathetic images of the people against whom prejudice is directed, a powerful example of how non-verbal expression can be used progressively to combat cliches."
-- Barbara Halpern Martineau (source)
