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)
