Anecdotal Evidence: The Work of Gerald Saul

Anecdotal Evidence: The Work of Gerald Saul is a retrospective of the 30-year career of Regina-based filmmaker and educator Gerald Saul. Saul has taught Film Production in the Department of Film at the University of Regina since 2000. The exhibition is Station 6 on the larger curatorial project Meet in the Middle: Stations of Migration and Memory Between Art and Film (Regina, 2014-2017), a partnership between Dr. Christine Ramsay (Film), Strandline Curatorial Collective and the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

Saul's oeuvre represents an eclectic contribution to lens-based storytelling. Existing between dramatic, experimental and animated forms, his works in film, digital video and photography engage live fragments of everyday life and their fabulation, sourced autobiographically and from others' personal histories. He is interested in memory and forgetting as he struggles to capture the anxieties and ephemerality of identity--both his own personal identity, and his shared prairie roots. With their characteristic flatlander irony, his works drift dreamily between fiction and fact, imagination and conviction, anecdote and evidence.

Anecdotal Evidence is conceived as an archive of Saul's prolific creative process which can be read as a gesture in "cinematic note-taking" in which the artist hovers over reams of ideas until some are hatched.
