Film Screening of: Margaret and Evergon
In 1999, the celebrated Montreal photographer Evergon took a remarkable series of nude portraits of his own mother, then 80 years old: black and white images that embodied not the infirmities of old age, but a timeless strength, dignity, even majesty. Some ten years later filmmaker Donald Winkler embarked on a project that would explore what lay behind that series of photographs, uncovering in the process a poignant family history, a woman’s determination to be her own person, and a unique and inspiring relationship between mother and son, The result… is Margaret & Evergon.
