Description:

Margaret Dragu screened the premiere of her short film, RENT DO, at Western Front as artist in residence. 

This eighteen-minute performative video was a reimagined Grimm’s Fairy Tales. It features a “dancing grandma” played by Dragu’s performative persona, La Dragu, and was performed in five languages with original music.

This work was made possible by the Filmmakers Assistance Programme of the National Film Board of Canada.

Western Front is a non-profit
artist-run centre in Vancouver.
