Dialogue with VI Feminist Film Manifestos

Coproduction with the CCCB and Mostra Internacional de Films de Dones from Barcelona

Seeing for ourselves - Women working with film, Margaret Williams, Gran Bretaña, 1983, 56'

This film, co-produced by Channel 4 and the British Arts Council, is focused on the experience of Circles, a collective born in 1980 to promote films made by women and to facilitate research and discussions around the experiences of women in the audiovisual sector. With an entirely peculiar narrative, the documentary introduces the voices and experiences of some Circles co-founders such as Joanna Davis, Tina Keane, Annabel Nicolson, Felicity Sparrow and Lis Rhodes. In addition, it includes two films by historical filmmakers claimed in their encounters: A House Divided, by Alice Guy (1913) and La Souriante Madamme Beudet, by Germaine Dulac (1922).


Plutonium Blonde, Sandra Lahire, Gran Bretaña, 1987, 16’
Part of a trilogy of films on radiation, this dystopic collage frames the fractured narrative of Thelma, a woman working with the monitors in a  plutonium reactor. Plutonium blonde, a color reference usually used in beauty products, becomes the reality of the female body in the chemical factory. Through phonic collages of casual conversations and children’s lullabies that are disrupted by the fumes of factories and the threat of a nuclear war, Sandra Lahire’s film confronts the viewer with difficult questions around the damaged bodies that inhabit a chemical reality and the female identity during such a crisis.
