Immensely influential to a generation of filmmakers, The Hart of London manages to create a seamless flow of documentary materials, poetic imagery, and a complex metaphoric construction. Canadian painter and filmmaker Jack Chambers created The Hart of London to speak about the costs of civilization and modernity, using images of his hometown of London, Ontario as the epicenter of his deeply felt alienation from “progress.” Unrelenting and strong, The Hart of London draws together a critical, poetic, and personal cinema, opening the way for others to explore this powerful connection (Daniel Eisenberg). 1970, Jack Chambers, Canada, 80 min, 16mm.
