Open City Cinema presents:
Barry Doupé’s The Colors that Combine to Make White are Important
April 9 l Doors at 7
Video Pool, 100 Arthur Street, 3rd Floor
$5.00

Vancouver animator Barry Doupé explores the power structure within a failing Japanese glass factory. Two parallel storylines — one involving the investigation of a suspect employee, the other a stolen painting — converge in an exposition on gender and desire. Doupé’s computer-animated characters evolve through three distinct acts, looking for something to be found through a crisis of feeling.

Alluding to the office comedy 9 to 5 (1980), Yasujiro Ozu’s staid, heartwarming Good Morning (1959), and Luchino Visconti’s sexually-charged finale in Death in Venice (1971), Colors shifts between cultural reference points.

Preceeded by a selection of short films picked by Barry Doupé, featuring the work of:
Marina Roy
Sharon Kahanoff
Tamara Henderson
Aleesa Cohene

Barry Doupé's films have been screened at various venues, including the Ann Arbor Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Pleasure Dome and MOCCA (Toronto), Whitechapel Gallery and the Tate Modern (London).
