Albedo

Top of page

Based on the journals and photographs of the late David Marvin of Montréal, Albedo chronicles the life of a photographer who, tormented by deafness and the hardships of living, killed himself in 1975. Surrealistic in style, the film parallels Marvin's life with that of a dying Montréal neighbourhood, Griffintown, which he faithfully documented. With English subtitles.

1982, 54 min
