I Dream of Inadequacy
Artist: Juli Saragosa
Year: 2017
Duration: 00:02:06
Country: Canada

Synopsis:
The writer Michael V. Smith asked several filmmakers to visually interpret a poem from his book “Bad Ideas.” Juli Saragosa combines a textured sound design and hand-processed Super8mm footage of abandoned places with Google Street View and rotoscoped imagery of talking ravens in this rendering of a poem about the feelings of shame and inadequacy as a settler on colonized land.

Artist
(s):

Growing up in an immigrant family, encouraged to try everything and the economic necessity to use what’s at hand (like a home photography darkroom), Juli Saragosa became an artistic experimenter from an early age.  As an interdisciplinary media and performance artist, Juli’s work extends to the curatorial and educational: she is a grassroots organizer of several independent festivals (The Project8 Super8 Film Festival and Mentorship Program-Vancouver, CA and the entzaubert queer DIY uncommercial film festival-Berlin, DE), a workshop leader (LIFT-Toronto, CA and VIVO-Vancouver, CA), mentor to young artists (Inside Out- Toronto, CA, Project8, and CFC-Toronto, CA), and as a media arts instructor (SFU- Vancouver, CA, UBC-Kelowna, CA and dBs Film-Berlin, DE).  Her works have been shown at festivals in Milan, London, L.A., Chicago, Berlin, Vancouver and Toronto.
