Quote:
"[Jane] Marsh's films have a tendency to articulate a point of view that is not quite 'editorial internationalism.' Her films are neither entirely self-effacing, nor fully impersonal, as so many of the 'prestige' series films are. Rather, her films incorporate irony and humour, a budding feminist perspective and perhaps more important, they consistently focus on Canadian subjects and locales. Ironically, in addition to being a woman, she held a perspective that [John] Grierson may have considered too Canadian for 'Canada Carries On.'"
