THE MOTION OF PUPPETS
The Motion of Puppets is based on the tragic Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Just past midnight in Quebec City, Kaye Harper enters an abandoned toyshop where she is transformed into a puppet and disappears. Her husband Theo sets off to find her, tracing her to another, darker world.
CENTURIES OF JUNE
One night in June, a man falls and is knocked out on the bathroom floor, alone with his dreams. Or is he haunted by the seven women who show up to remind him of his past lives? And what about the old man and talking cat who keep him company? A comic tale of American myths and the poetics of space.
ANGELS OF DESTRUCTION
On a winter's night, a young girl appears at the home of a lonely widow. She calls herself an angel and sets to bring about a reconciliation between the widow and her daughter who had run away twenty years earlier to join the notorious anarchists, the Angels of Destruction.
