Continental Drift

Rebecca Garrett

1994, 52:21 minutes, colour, English


Continental Drift is an intriguing analysis of how ordinary people in Canada and Zimbabwe imagine each other. As an artist moving between two geographical locations for an extended period of time, Garrett became interested in a number of questions: "How, or in what way, does perception relate to place?" "What is the relationship between perception, the imaginary and material and historical reality?" "How does Zimbabwe / Africa exist in the minds and imaginations of Canadians/North Americans? Why?" Conversely, "How does Canada /North America exist in the minds and imaginations of Zimbabweans? Why?"
