The Transformable Moment: The Films of Stephen Broomer
"The Transformable Moment" is a collection of essays on the films of Stephen Broomer, edited by Scott Birdwise and Tom McSorley. Contributors include R. Bruce Elder, Dan Browne, Clint Enns, Zoe Heyn-Jones, Brett Kashmere, Scott Miller Berry, Cameron Moneo, Andrea Picard, and Michael Sicinski.
"Having devoted his life to the art of cinema in his various capacities as a filmmaker, scholar, preservationist, and poet, Stephen Broomer is on his way to establishing himself among the most aesthetically and historical engaged experimental filmmakers in Canada. His practice is indeed 'experimental' in the best sense of the term: his films are imbued with a clear awareness of the great strengths and weaknesses of what was, the limitations and possibilities of what is, and the mystery and wonder of what could be." - Scott Birdwise
