Frontiers in Atom Egoyan's films: identity, imagination and crossing through images

Abstract : Atom Egoyan is a Canadian filmmaker, born in Egypt in 1960, to parents of Turkish nationality, descendants of Armenian refugees. This amalgamation of identities feeds his work, particularly his first films. The frontier theme is expressed in different ways: a symptom of a problematic search for a cultural identity, a relationship to an imaginary territory, a confusing boundary between the past and the present, reality and imagination or even between cinema, video and photography.
