Cold Fronts

Cold Fronts

| 6 min

Director Murray Siples' love/hate letter to Vancouver weather captures both the mundane and the thrilling experience of living on the West (wet) Coast. The winter rain colours every aspect of city life, but people cope, wielding umbrellas like swords, clutching coats and hats against the constant deluge.

A personal take on one man's experience of the winter, Cold Fronts is a kaleidoscopic view of the collision point between nature and the city.

This film was produced in partnership with VANOC and Canada CODE for the 2010 Cultural Olympiad.

    Oh my god this film is so frightfully self indulgent I am compelled to leave a comment...I have lived in Vancouver and all I have to say is that the filmmaker has no idea what winter is, in fact I have to wonder if he is even Canadian at all...come live in Edmonton for a month in the dead of winter with temperatures topping out at a nice and dry minus 30 and you'll be begging for a week long torrential downpour. To me this movie says more about how people's perceptions about their immediate environment are shaped by the seeming instinctual compulsion for humans wherever they are to complain about the weather, how ever irrational it is do so. When you look at the climate of cities across this country, there is really only one city in this entire country that has a more liveable climate than Vancouver, and that's Victoria.

    Well, given how much it tries to fulfill VANOC criteria - which I am sure played a big part in how much advertisment is an influence - this flick is sure to disuade masses from buying skyline and waterfront here on my beloved, soft, grey, wet Westcoast. For this I thank the filmmakers. As for a film, pretty sad, bad soundtrack (high end frequency on computer is assaultive to the ears). Doesn't make me want to visit Vancouver - so this is good to keep those who can only thrive in sunny modes away!
