Intellectually febrile, philosophically fertile, and formally agile, the works of Daniel Cockburn are propelled by that great Canadian cinematic preoccupation with ontological and epistemological uncertainty. By turns essayistic, diaristic, satiric, poetic, dramatic, and comedic, Cockburn’s explorations grapple with our predicament of existing in time.
