Triumph of a City // a propaganda film // 2013 // 19:00 // HD

Triumph of a City is a deconstructed memory of the world's history that never was. Hard times, unemployment, and political unrest stir the global citizenry to search out a new social order that will define the next one-thousand years. On the brink of world revolution, one euphemistic city embraces apathy and short-sightedness, refusing to change. This is our (allegorical) city.

Winnipeg-based film artist Aaron Zeghers reappropriates the words and images from yester-year’s forgotten propaganda films, and with it carves out his own political proclamation. With a reverence for the past and a fear of the future, Triumph of a City is a political manifesto on revolution and a frustrated dialogue with one's hometown.
