Joyce Wieland’s achievements in many mediums recently brought her the coveted Order of Canada—the first woman artist to gain this honor. Between 1966 and 1973 Wieland produced a richly varied body of films. Functioning on many levels, La Raison… is her personal journey through the landscape of Canada. “This film is about the pain and joy of living in a very large space; in fact, in a continent. It is painful, because such an experience distends the mind, it seems too large for passionate reason to contain. It is joyous, because “true patriot love,” a reasonable passion, can contain it, after all.” —Hollis Frampton.
