Event description

Description

This series explores independent but interconnected feminist solidarity networks for film and video production and distribution in Britain and in France, foregrounding the historical tensions between representation and moving image, while looking towards new approaches and collaborations in contemporary moving image practices.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the foundation of Circles – Women’s Film and Video Distribution, Cinenova presents a selection of films in response to the exhibition Lis Rhodes: Dissident Lines. Join the Cinenova Working Group and Lucy Reynolds for a discussion around the collection, its history and contemporary questions for a feminist artists’ moving image organisation.

Founded in 1979 by a small group including Felicity Sparrow, Tina Keane, Lis Rhodes and Annabel Nicolson, Circles’ programme included women-only screenings and group discussions that took place at Four Corners Film Workshops in Bethnal Green.

Screening programme:

Annette Kennerly, Boys In The Backyard, 1997, 22'
Tran T Kim Trang, Ekleipsis, 1998, 22'
Victoria Mappleback, Judgement Day, 1989, 12'
Mitra Trabazian, The Third Woman, 1991, 20'
