Abstract or Description:

From Reel to Real, Programme 1 Collapsing the Frame

Curated by Maud Jacquin, “From Reel to Real” is presented by Anthology Film Archives in association with LUX, London.

The filmmakers in this program experiment with film structure in an attempt to collapse the frame within which women are confined, both cinematic and cultural. Their films evoke feelings of entrapment and oppression at the same time as they enact a radical attack on patriarchal authority as embedded in social, linguistic, and filmic conventions. In particular, they attempt to break out of women’s “misrepresentations” by expressing something in excess of representation, both through an engagement with the rhythms and textures of images and sounds and through opening up gaps and interstitial spaces in the film texts.
