Elida Schogt

Elida Schogt uses conceptual premises, formally experimental techniques and poetic visual language. Whether installation or film, the work explores the theme of memory; uses scientific or historical inquiry as a tool for seeking truth; and, ultimately relies on metaphor to distill complex human processes into clear and coherent forms. Elida has an MA in Media Studies from the New School for Social Research in New York.

Elida's deeply personal trilogy of short documentaries on Holocaust memory: ZYKLON PORTRAIT (1999), THE WALNUT TREE (2000) and SILENT SONG (2001) have been screened around the globe, garnering numerous awards - most notably for the début film: The Grand Prize at the Bilbao International Festival of Documentary & Short Film and Special Mention for Best Independent Canadian Film of Hot Docs: Canadian International Documentary Festival.
