Finding Her Voice Through The Lens: Feminist Avant-Garde Films by Susan Stein and Others
+ Q&A with Susan Stein
Susan Stein joins us to present her playful experimental films and her pick of other work from the 70s and 80s.
Total runtime 100min
For this month’s special Experimenta, award-winning camerawoman Susan Stein personally presents a selection of her formally playful, radical experimental films from the 1970s and 80s. Incorporating collage, paint on the celluloid and discursive explorations, G, She Said and Tracks were created at a time of significant change in the way alternative film was made and how production and distribution were organised. Stein also selects other work from the period as a way of honouring women’s voices, and reflecting on what has been possible through the creative manipulation of the image. This programme is presented in collaboration with Cinenova, who celebrate the 40th anniversary of their parent organisation, Circles – the UK’s first artists’ film and video distributor for women.
