Quote:
"Joyce Wieland's films gather together what matters -- matters of heart, home and country, in a language of flesh and of roses, a language of love. Her concern is to make an ecological vision, one that has respect for all things, what matters: plant matter, animals, people, history, politics, art, the landscape itself."
-- Leila Sujir
