Citation :
« It is not for nothing that Joyce Wieland is known as an innovational artist and experimental filmmaker. If most films have as a sub-text the way men see women, The Far Shore presents us with a delicate record of how an especially sensitive woman sees a particular group of men. It is not an encouraging vision. More visual than narrative, more suggestive than explanatory, The Far Shore is nevertheless a most beautiful film—evocative both of the period it is set in and of the values it represents. In this way, The Far Shore joins the great tradition within Canadian film culture (scarcely recognized as such) that records the inability of Canadian society to provide a meaningful existence for its most sensitive inhabitants. It is thus not only a personal film, a 'feminist' film, but a film which has political significance for the whole Canadian nation and, hopefully, for the world at large. »
