About this product
- DescriptionThe Cinema of Robert Lepage: The Poetics of Memory is the first critical study of one of the most striking artists of Quebecois and Canadian independent filmmaking. The book examines Lepage's creative methods of filmmaking in their cultural and social context providing historical and industrial background to his many projects, and argues that his film work cant be seen separately from his opus as a multi-disciplinary artist. Further, this study demonstrates that like Jean Cocteau, Mike Leigh and Alain Resnais, Lepage is a multi-faceted artist who works with a consistent group of actors on very personal themes, building his films during months or even years of a perpetual rehearsal process. It thus challenges the tions that Lepage be considered only in the terms of Quebecois film tradition by illuminating the very ideosyncratic practices of Lepageis film and theatre work. In focusing on the cinematic output of this important contemporary artist, with case studies of Le Confessional, Le Polygraphe, No, and Possible Worlds, this important new mograph explores these themes and concerns, and includes an exclusive and detailed interview with Robert Lepage.
