Event Details

Free film screenings throughout the day at Pullman Court, Streatham Hill
Sunday 23rd September

Highlights from the programme confirmed so far include:

Roberta Cantow’s Emmy Award-winning Clotheslines (1982), about the artistic and symbolic role of laundry in women’s lives

Margaux Guillemard’s beautiful 26 rue Saint Fargeau (2017), a vertical journey through a Parisian social estate

Lisa Castagner’s spellbinding Pullman Court in 29 Parts (2014), a rhythmical short depicting residents’ shared experience of sunset.

Thresholds is thrilled to announce its first event! On Sunday 23rd September from 10:00-17:00, Pullman Court, the modernist, Grade II* residential estate, will host a compelling installation of innovative female filmmakers’ short films and moving image works. Each film will be situated within the estate’s remarkable architecture, using both private homes and communal spaces opened exclusively as part of the Open House Weekend 2018.

Thresholds will explore how identity is constructed in relation to architecture, homes and domesticity, from a feminist perspective. The season aims to re-frame and foster an understanding of how spaces develop, project and limit an individual’s potential and identity. By foregrounding spaces that have historically been dismissed as female, the films, in combination with the venue, will reclaim the once-erased labour of the home, and celebrating women’s agency.
