Intro and Q&A with director Daniel Cockburn

What begins as an enquiry on things that mean other things itself becomes a thing that means other things, too. And whatever exactly that thing is, the latest by one of Canada's most ingenious auteurs is another astounding feat of cerebral and cinephilic dexterity.

Ce qui commence comme une enquête sur les choses qui signifient d'autres choses devient en soi une chose qui signifie d'autres choses. Peu importe ce que cette chose est exactement, cette plus récente réalisation d'un des auteurs canadiens les plus ingénieux est un autre épatant exploit cérébral et cinéphile.
