Suzanne Gauthier: One thing leads to another | Documentary, 15:00, English, NS, 2017 | Director: Ariella Pahlke
Filmmaker Ariella Pahlke weaves the life and work of Suzanne Gauthier into a poetic narrative that mirrors the artist’s own process, capturing the flux in her work and how it’s interrelated with her environment.
Intricately blending autobiography, landscape and culture, Gauthier navigates the marvellous and the ordinary, often infusing both with humour.
