Gunvor Nelson - Call To Mind
Blu-ray box featuring MY NAME IS OONA (1969), TIME BEING (1991) and RED SHIFT (1984), a trilogy with the family as a theme. TRUE TO LIFE (2006) functions as a separate comment to the other films. Includes a catalog with texts by Astrid Soderbergh Widding, Susanne Forest, Steve Anker and John Sundholm, in Swedish and English, as well as a large number of still images.
Nelson has over the years created some thirty films and video works ranging from 1953 and 1993, primarily in California but currently lives and works in her native town of Kristinehamn.
From the booklet: “Gunvor Nelson has always dug where she stood. Attentive, responsive, determined, curious and with a great sense of humor. The films have followed her as a person as she films. Over the years, there is an ever-growing frustration over the fragility and transience of film as a material. Celluloid is anything but a mass-producible and automatically copyable medium. Thus, the increased demand for her work in this Blu-ray edition is most welcome.” (John Sundholm)
