Synopsis of “The Young Prince” Fifth film from the film cycle “The Book of Praise”
125 minutes, 16 mm. film, 2007
“A beggar imagines himself sitting at the edge of a maelstrom, looking inward at a vortex, observing beings-demonic forms, ghosts, animals-first rising and then falling through the vortex: all of them, he realizes have the character they do because of his mental state.”* The film is about transformation and is more abstract than linear narrative. * quote from Bruce Elder
Bruce Elder is a Hamilton raised and educated filmmaker, writer, critic and teacher of film studies at Ryerson University. Elder received the 2007 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts. The jury described him as “highly innovative,” “influential” and “acutely intelligent,” noting the enormous span of his practice and the demanding nature of his films.
