Absolutely love this poster, Villeneuve & Co.
Congrats to author Ernest Mathijs on this, & thank you U of T Press.
“Few studies of Canadian cinema to date have engaged deeply with genre cinema and its connection to Canadian culture. Ernest Mathijs does just that in this volume, which traces the inception, production, and reception of Canada’s internationally renowned horror film, Ginger Snaps (2000). This tongue-in-cheek Gothic film, which centres on two death-obsessed teenage sisters, draws a provocative connection between werewolf monstrosity and female adolescence and boasts a dedicated world-wide fan base.
The first book-length study of this popular film, John Fawcett’s Ginger Snaps is based on the author’s privileged access to most of its cast and crew and to its enthusiasts around the world. Examining themes of genre, feminism, identity, and adolescent belonging, Mathijs concludes that Ginger Snaps deserves to be recognized as part of the Canadian canon, and that it is a model example of the kind of crossover cult film that remains unjustly undervalued by film scholars.” - from the publisher
Recognize the new cast member this week, Canada? Montreal’s French-language film star Evelyne Brochu (POLYTECHNIQUE, INCH’ALLAH, CAFE DE FLORE) yes, plays Cosima’s new friend, Delphine.
Is Delphine a monitor?
All About Ava: a typical day at my kitchen table, a space reserved for the work of adapting Ian Hamilton’s wonderful mysteries series for films with, thank goodness, his generous & invaluable guidance.
Tools: hard copies of the books, highlighters, a 3” D-ring binder for the working & published Drafts (for making my own changes & cuts by hand), Notes and Correspondence - printed out -, a dedicated Moleskine (where I work things out beat by beat before I type anything), stickies, endless colour-coded stickies, pens - Uniball Fines & Sharpies - though the purple is unusual and probably nicked from a tv writing room along the way.
I continue to support peaceful demonstrations against any law that makes the public expressions against the suppression of free speech illegal.
