Synopsis

Montreal Premiere - In attendance of the Director Rachel Echenberg and the Distributor Denis Vaillancourt.

Mother and daughter embrace the difficult intricacies of explaining art to each other through an intimate action. This is intercut with a straightforward description of Joseph Beuys’ well-known 1965 performance, How to explain pictures to a dead hare. Absurdity and tenderness merge to reveal understanding as a sensory activity.
