Canadian artist and filmmaker Rhayne Vermette moved out of academia to pursue her own artistic vision. Years later, we’re being witness of one of the most remarkable bodies of work in contemporary experimental cinema.

What follows is a hour-and-a-half conversation with Desistfilm, about her work as a filmmaker, her place as a woman artist in Winnipeg, her influences and other topics.
