You Must Remember This
Cinematography: Marshalore Marshalore, David Rahn
Music: Abe Lee
Categories :FIFA Experimental
A series of intimate micro-dramas in which marshalore sings old songs from the 1930s and ’40s, this autobiographical narrative depicts the pressures of conforming to the stereotypes of feminine beauty. Although the lyrics are banal, the melody from the song You Must Remember This and the remarkable camera-work combine to create an entrancing atmosphere.
The multidisciplinary artist marshalore is the co-founder of Vehicule Press and Vidéo Véhicule (PRIM). She was also the director of Véhicule Art Montréal, one of Canada’s first artist-run centres. Her work draws its inspiration from environment studies, social behaviour and symbolism. Her current research focuses on the intersections of language and culture, an area embracing language, symbols and images. She has also worked with Aboriginal women on the symbolic representation of post-diaspora self-identification. Her works have been presented in North America, Europe and Japan.
