Suitcase of Love and Shame is an experimental film that reconstructs a mesmerizing and erotic narrative sourced from 60 hours of audiotapes. The reel-to-reel tapes, recorded in the 1960′s, were discovered in a suitcase purchased on eBay. In the recordings, a Mid-western woman and her lover chronicle the explicit details of their adulterous affair. The film suggestively foregrounds the recorder as the confidant, witness, and participant the couple come to depend on — always omnipresent, the recorder creates a welcomed ménage-à-trois. Suitcase of Love and Shame aims for a cross-generational dialogue about exhibitionism, privacy, voyeurism, and the role technology plays in our most intimate relationships.



The Images Festival is Toronto’s original inter-disciplinary arts festival. “Expanding cinema” since 1988, the Images Festival celebrates the moving image in all its forms ­ going beyond theatrical screenings to embrace live performances, gallery installations and site-specific interventions. Showcasing the best in contemporary image arts from around the world every April, Images provokes audiences to imagine what is possible.


Our 26th festival takes place April 11-20 at various venues across downtown Toronto, and features artists including Tim Hecker, Robert Todd, Althea Thauberger, Jane Gillooly, Kuai Shen, John Torres, Jodie Mack, Lynne Sachs, Adele Horne, Greg Staats, Bjorn Kammerer, Hamid Drake and Alexandra Gelis.
