For photographs and films: There are several National Film Board of Canada films that are essential to your study of films and photographs -- especially the docudrama feature film _The Company of Strangers_ about seven old women stranded in the woods who pass the time telling personal stories which are punctuated by still photos from their past. Also interesting is a 1970 NFB short by Martin Duckworth called "The Wish" which cuts to still photos every time the filmmaker's two daughters look at the camera. Essential reading: "Cinema, Memory and the Photographic Trace" by Peter Harcourt and "Image: Representation and Object--the Photographic Image in Canadian Avant-Garde Film" by R. Bruce Elder. Both of these essays are in an out-of-print anthology called _Take Two_, edited by Seth Feldman in 1984. See also R. Bruce Elder's book: _Image and Identity: Reflections on Canadian Film and Culture_, Waterloo, ON: Wilfrid Laurier UP, 1989.
