This 20-minute survey is an essential introduction to the films of Mark Lewis and his distinctive cinematic language. The artist describes his influences and approach to real-time narratives that are as compelling to watch as they are to interpret. Clearly, there is nothing random about his technique. Each of the 6 films presented here - from a 4-minute monologue on the role of extras in movies, to the way the teasing title, Spadina Reverse Dolly Zoom Nude anticipates its revealing conclusion - are carefully crafted compositional studies rooted in the history of the visual arts
