Abstract: In the days that followed the Montréal Massacre at the École Polytechnique, December 6, 1989, the Canadian mass media became a discursive battleground regarding violence against women. In response to this phenomenon, I released a half-hour documentary in 1995 entitled Reframing the Montreal Massacre: A Media Interrogation. Designed as a feminist tool for media literacy, the tape deconstructs six key moments in the media coverage of the Massacre. This paper serves as an extended artist’s statement to accompany the project’s re-release on the Internet, while simultaneously exploring aesthetic and representational strategies that shape the documentary. This article is supported by several videos.

Résumé : Dans les jours qui suivirent le massacre de l’École Polytechnique de Montréal, le 6 décembre 1989, la presse canadienne devint un champ de bataille discursif relativement à la violence orientée contre les femmes. En réponse à ce phénomène, j’ai réalisé en 1995 un documentaire d’une demi-heure intitulé Reframing the Montreal Massacre: A Media Interrogation. Conçu comme un outil féministe en faveur de l’information médiatique, le documentaire déconstruit six moments clés de la couverture médiatique du massacre. A l’occasion de la rediffusion du projet sur Internet, le présent article réitère dans sa continuité ma prise de position en tant qu’artiste, explorant simultanément les stratégies esthétiques et représentationnelles qui modèlent le documentaire. Plusieurs vidéos viennent compléter cet article.
