Kent Tate is an award-winning Canadian artist/filmmaker whose work explores the dichotomy between tranquility and activity in our natural and manufactured worlds. Time, motion and stillness are intertwined through Kent’s movies to act like a fulcrum upon which the environmental, social and philosophical aspects of his projects are held in dynamic balance. Kent recently finished a movie project that he began in 2016 focusing on the Interior Plateau of British Columbia. He is scheduled to release four new movies in 2019 that articulate his fascination with the exquisite displays of shadow and light in the BC interior as well as his response to the effects of the devastating forest fires that have swept this region in recent years.
