Canadian animator Gail Noonan reflects on her trailblazing career in independent film

 

In this extended conversation with animator Gail Noonan, S.W. Conser asks about the early artistic adventures with the Winnipeg Film Group that helped spark Gail's four-decade-long career in the world of Canadian independent film and led to her recent retrospective at Portland's Northwest Film Center.

Gail's short films celebrate human relations and the natural world with a sweeping range of artistic techniques, from collage to stop-motion animation.  Inspired by her early training as a printmaker, Gail's work cuts against the grain with humor and heart, tackling themes of justice and liberation, poetry and sexuality, and gender representation in the media.
