Toronto 1971-1989 and Midi Onodera

Just a heads up that the AGO currently has an exhibition 'Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971-1989' that looks interesting. Would be curious for any thoughts on it if you've seen it? I'd probably go check it out in the next couple of weeks. As well the CFMDC will be presenting a series of screenings 'Personal Perspectives 1971–1979' to accompany it from March 9th to 12th. I'm particularly interested in the works in 'Geographies of Self and City' on Sunday March 12th at 2PM, which includes a film by Mike Hoolboom, who also just published a book on the Funnel film cooperative and was awarded the Governor General award, and Midi Onodera, whose vital The Displaced View (1988) just played at EMS and whose updated website offers a thorough sample of her filmography.
