"Allegorical by design, Nagler’s vision is composed of fragments of recognizable reality commingled with the raw matter of hallucination and nascent form. In Nagler’s work, vision is both a phenomenological and historical entity; a damaged engagement with time, space, and the archaeologies of memory and film. Stories of migration and refuge take suggestive shape, often against and within the vast expanses of the Canadian prairies. In Nagler’s cinema, ethical engagement has to be equal to the task of the precariousness of life in transition. Home is temporary; home is a refuge."

- Sarah Darmon
