Filmmaker Pat “Flick” Harrison is having a ten-year retrospective on July 25th at the Blinding Light in Vancouver, BC at 36 Powell St.
Starting out as a videographer on CBC’s “Road Movies”, the only series ever made entirely on Hi8 and seen by over 2 million people, Flick has since moved on as a more radical, politically charged filmmaker. Featured in this retrospective will be three world premieres and two sneak previews.
Featured in the show will be:
“This is Not a War” – a segment of Flick’s documentary “Camels Turbans Guns,” about strategic Baluchistan and the oil-inspired Afghan war.
“Spot the War” – wanders a Vancouver neighbourhood for evidence that Canadian soldiers were on March 14, 2002, making their first kills since the Korean war.
“The Victory Party” – newly minted for this screening, the film is about an artist (Stephen Wittek) who crucifies a failed revolutionary leader (Jeffrey Flieler) for the Victory celebration of evil dictator Maloney (Catherine Falkner).
Sneak Preview of “Longshot” – Flick’s recently completed feature.
