Gunilla Josephson: Resistance

Josephson's feature-length video work, The Blood-Red Heart of Johanna Darke, tells a tale of a woman who could have lived but perhaps never did. It is the 1940s. Fleeing her beginnings as a religious novice, Johanna Darke finds herself in Paris working with the Resistance against the Nazi occupiers. The political necessity of isolation creates a loneliness in Joanna that causes her to oscillate between fantasy and reality. Essays and an artist's statement provide a comprehensive perspective on the work of the Swedish-born Canadian artist, sumptuously illustrated with several full-page and double-page colour stills. The film was premiered at The Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris.
