“A visit with my father – Gerard Luther Clarkes. A man who unmakes and remakes the world, daily.
I made a wee doc about my dad. It’s something I’ve been intending to do for years, but was motivated by his current solo exhibition Gerard Clarkes: A Haunted Land, on at The Confederation Centre Art Gallery until June 16, 2021. He is a force of personality and creative expression. He is a man who has always lived one step out of time. I have him to thank for most of the deep thinks I ever thought.
Making a film about ones parent smacks of nepotism, I know. But I swear he is documentary-gold, father or not.”
