Mennonite Plaut'dietsch/Russian/German-with non-translating subtitles in English/Experimental.

The result of a collaboration between artists Nahed Mansour and Kandis Friesen, this work is based on the original footage from an unrealized documentary found at the Mennonite Heritage Centre Archives in Winnipeg Manitoba. Engaging found footage as a kind of abstract architecture of remembering, the video fuses the untranslated and unedited footage with an imagined subtitled dialogue, challenging notions of authenticity, authorship, and collective memory so intertwined with conventional documentary-making.
