Lida Moser Photographer: Odyssey in Black and White


The McCord Museum invites you to the screening of Lida Moser Photographer: Odyssey in Black and White (Joyce Borenstein, 2017, 26 minutes, in English, without subtitles). With the director Joyce Borenstein, as well as Jean-Claude Labrecque, filmmaker, and François Morelli, Professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University. Discussion moderated by Professor Norman Cornett.

New York photographer Lida Moser (1920-2014), who worked for Vogue magazine, travelled across Quebec in the summer of 1950. She took over a thousand superb photos of a society and landscape on the cusp of modernization. Sixty years later, we hear Lida Moser reminisce about the historic road trip. The film interlaces her photos with animation and time lapse photography, and her voice is combined with archival voices from Quebec 1950.

The film screening is followed by an informal and friendly chat over a glass of wine.

Location:  J. Armand Bombardier Theatre at the McCord Museum
