Notes on Feminist Process: Preview of Yours in Sisterhood
September 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-4Free
Notes on Feminist Process: a Preview screening of Yours in Sisterhood
Filmmaker Irene Lusztig is scheduled to be present.
What might be revealed in the slippery space of inviting strangers to act out and respond to 1970s feminism in 2017? YOURS IN SISTERHOOD invites women, children, and men in communities all over the US to read aloud and respond to letters from the 1970s sent to the editor of Ms. Magazine–America’s first mainstream feminist magazine. The intimate, provocative, and sometimes heartbreaking conversations with strangers that emerge from these spontaneous performances of forty-year-old letters make us think critically about the past, present, and future of feminism, providing a space of reflection that is newly urgent in the aftermath of the 2016 election.
Filmmaker Irene Lusztig will screen and discuss a full-length preview version of this film-in-progress. Rather than emphasizing the finished product / final version of the film, the format of this screening aims to open the materials and methods of the film up for discussion about feminist filmmaking, feminst histories, strategies, and process.
