Jux Saturday School: "Here and the Great Elsewhere" By Michèle Lemieux
As we do each Saturday on our Instagram, we ask Boston-based artist, Josh Jefferson, to curate our #JuxSaturdaySchool series, exploring the globe for classic vidoes, tutorials and animations. Today, Jefferson selected a work by French-Canadian filmmaker, Michèle Lemieux, and her wonderful short animation, Here and the Great Elsewhere. As described on the wonderful database of Nfb.ca, "This abstract yet compelling philosophical tale uses the Alexeïeff-Parker pinscreen as a metaphor for the particles that make up the universe. Through 4 tableaux that explore her character’s thoughts, filmmaker Michèle Lemieux takes a look at the profound reflections of this everyman, whose questions are part of humanity’s eternal quest for meaning."
