Penny McCann

Penny McCann’s body of work spans two decades and encompasses both dramatic and experimental films and videos. Her narrative works: The Sisters (1993); The Fires of Joanna (1998); Helpless (2001), and The Professor and the Blind Girl (2009), involve stories from the past told in highly codified ways. Her experimental works include Marshlands (2000), 02.02.02. (2003), Away for Christmas (2004), and Lake Ontario (in my head) (2006) and form an ongoing investigation into hybrid forms of expression, mixing film and video imagery to create shifts in subjectivity, memory, and perspective. Her films and videos have been broadcast widely and exhibited at festivals and galleries throughout Canada and internationally in Europe, Asia, and the United States.
