“Experimental, dramatic, parodic, engaging, the films of Toronto artist and filmmaker Su Rynard represent a remarkable range of film styles and thematic subjects. From her fascinating experimental works (Signal, Eight Men Called Eugene) to her dramatic shorts (Big Deal So What, Strands), Rynard’s work demonstrates the best aspects of Canadian independent filmmaking: a personal vision, a supple and diverse approach to style, and an intelligent, open perspective on the world being filmed.“
