Series of Fantastic films by Fantastic Femme Filmmakers
Refusing to rationalize the female body and the phenomenological experiences found within, the films in this program aim to provoke both desire and fear. Moving between identifiable locations like the Lower East Side and the pure fantasy of ritual, what may appear everyday and mundane can change quickly into the unrecognizable. Propelled by belief in the mystical, the power of melodrama, and the overriding influence of affect, a gothic sensibility imbues these films’ ambiguous territories and their strange discoveries.
