About

"Abstraction deals with the interpretation of abstract form as found in the combination of the nude body, landscape, and objects. Imagery is achieved through visual distortion dealing with reflective surfaces, as well as the superimposition of subject matter. The rhythmic structure focuses on a pulsating expansion and contraction that simulates a life force. An attempt has been made to reveal the basic concepts of a painter's approach to the distillation of reality." - RS

    A Mirror Avant-Garde

    Non-Canonical Canonicals by Women Filmmakers

    If you’ve seen more than three of the films in this program, we’d be surprised. Yet every single one of these films by women filmmakers deserves to be written about, taught in classes, and be part of the canon of avant-garde film.
