The film choice of Deborah Jack
The fickleness of memory is an important theme in the work of Drisana Deborah Jack, a poet and artist from St Martin. What do our memories mean? Why do we remember one thing and forget the other? She not only investigates personal memory but also collective cultural memory and the loss of memory. She compiled a programme of fragments of films for Winternachten, in which memory and time are depicted as a non-linear experience. With amongst others fragments from Daughters of the Dust by Julie Dash (1991), Beloved by Jonathan Demme with Oprah Winfrey (1998), and Memento by Christopher Nolan (2000). English spoken.
