Ann Marie Fleming Artist Talk

Ann Marie Fleming Artist Talk
Tues. Nov. 19 @ 12pm
NSCAD, Academy Building Rm 208 (1649 Brunswick)


Ann Marie Fleming is a filmmaker, writer and visual artist based in Vancouver. Her film work includes animation, documentary, musicals, experimental films and feature-length dramas. Since the release of her first films, “Waving” (1987) and “You Take Care Now” (1989), she has been lauded internationally for the dignity and humour with which she treats issues of family and memory as well as darker topics of death and trauma.

More recently, she was recognized for “I Was the Child of Holocaust Survivors,” which was included TIFF’s Top 10 films of 2010 and was long-listed for an Academy Award. Her work has been screened throughout Canada, the USA and Europe and in Brazil, India, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Iran.

Fleming’s visit to Halifax will include an artist talk with screenings of short films as well as a rare opportunity to see her 2003 feature-length documentary, “The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam.” A thoroughly charming film that combines contemporary and archival live action footage with the animation of drawings and archival photos, Long Tack Sam tells the captivating story of her Chinese great-grandfather, a magician and vaudeville acrobat who traveled the globe in the early part of the 20th century.
