Lola Rémy is a PhD candidate in Film and Moving Image Studies in the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema at Concordia University, Montreal. Her research interests include experimental cinema, postcolonial theory, film and ethnographic archives, indigenous films and media, and cultural history.
Her dissertation, "The 'Universal Language of Images': Interdisciplinary Assemblages in Post-War Experimental Cinema" investigates and contextualizes the formation of a post-war universalist discourse as expressed in experimental film practices of assemblage. She offers a decolonizing perspective on the appropriation of Indigenous artefacts and imagery, at the core of this discourse. Her work has been published in NECSUS European Journal of Media Studies.
I acknowledge that Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters we now call Montreal.
