Loop, Print, Fade + Flicker: David Rimmer’s Moving Images


Anvil Press


This was the first title in Pacific Cinémathèque’s Monograph Series of books about film; the publisher wanted a versatile yet flexible design that would work across a range of titles about different West Coast filmmakers.


“There is no better way to start off Pacific Cinémathèque’s Monograph Series, celebrating West Coast filmmakers, than with the work of David Rimmer. Mike Hoolboom’s essay tantalizes us with a romantic myth that contextualizes David, while Alex MacKenzie’s interview lets the artist speak for himself. Both offer a unique insight into the art practice of one of the most influential Canadian filmmakers of the 20th century.” — Ann Marie Fleming, independent filmmaker and visual artist
