The lollipop generation/G.B. Jones

WIKI: G. B. Jones is a Canadian artist, filmmaker, musician, and publisher of zines based in Toronto, Canada. Her drawings have been featured at galleries around the world, and her films screened at numerous film festivals, both in Canada and abroad.

The Lollipop Generation is an underground experimental film. "Shot on Super 8 and video, The Lollipop Generation takes these tools of the traditional home movie and uses them to make a fucked up family film." The film was made over a period of 13 years, "one Super-8 reel at a time", whenever the director could afford to buy another cartridge of film. In the end, the Toronto band Kids on TV organized a benefit so that GB Jones could finish it.
