Scope and content
The item is VHS video containing copies of two films copied from the National Film, Television and Sound Archives, National Archives of Canada in 1986. The first item on the video is the experimental film "And---", made around 1939. Perhaps the first experimental film made in British Columbia, this short uses found footage, painted and scratched emulsion, negative and reversed images, chaotic camera movements, and holes punched in the frame and filled with other images. Some portions are hand coloured.
The second item on the videotape is "Let's go Fishing", an industrial film made by the British Columbia Dept. of Fisheries in 1948. It depicts commercial salmon fishing and canning in BC and includes fish ladders at Hells Gate and Bridge River rapids, the operations of gillnetters and purse-seiners, long, good interior sequence of canning processes (including footage of an "Iron Chink" salmon butchering machine) and cannery workers.
