The Ballad of Dan Peoples

Directed by Lisa Steele
Canada, 1976 (video art, 8 minutes, black and white, English)

Film Description:
"I made this tape shortly after my grandfather's death as a memory of his voice and speech patterns. The tape is a woven song of sorts, made up of many stories that he told and retold to me when I was a child. The stories were about his childhood; the tape is more about how memory is transmitted and retained than about the specifics of any one particular narrative."
-- Lisa Steele (source)
