Women’s Moving Pictures: New Works By Six Experimental Film Artists

The half-dozen films to be shown: Chick Strand’s Anselmo and the Women, which explores the private life of a Mexican street musician; Gunvor Nelson’s Frameline, which combines memories and fantasies with physical reality; Barbara Hammer’s approximation of the viewpoint of her 97-year-old grandmother in Optic Nerve; Jean Sousa’s Spent Moments, which follows the domestic entrapment and chores of an anonymous woman; Margaret Ganahl’s Saving the Proof, which brings about the complex breakdown and transformation of a walking woman; and Ardath Grant’s lament in three movements for the late writer and video artist Theresa Cha, Departures.
