Nov 11 to 13 :: BEYOND THE SCORCHED EARTH OF COUNTER-CINEMA: Laura Mulvey & Peter Wollen



laura-mulveyBeyond the Scorched Earth of Counter-Cinema: Laura Mulvey & Peter Wollen

a retrospective curated by Oliver Fuke featuring Laura Mulvey & many others

November 11 to 13, Friday to Sunday
times TBA

This is the first U.S. retrospective devoted to the individual and collaborative features of film theorists Laura Mulvey (b.1941) and Peter Wollen (b.1938). After writing their early influential texts – Mulvey’s Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema and Wollen’s Signs and Meaning in the Cinema – they made six films together between 1974 and 1983. Their varied output moves across – and, in some cases, combines – the genres of documentary, narrative, feminist and avant-garde film. This season, which will screen a range of works made for both film and television, includes Penthesilea (1974), Riddles of the Sphinx (1977), AMY! (1980), Crystal Gazing (1982), Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti (1982) and Friendship’s Death (1987).

Laura Mulvey will be in conversation with a rich cross-section of guests/interlocutors throughout the long weekend.
