Event description

Description

Since the 1970s, our exhibiting artist, Lis Rhodes has been an experimental filmmaker, influential film programmer, and founding member of Circles – the first women artists' film and video distribution organisation in Britain.

This film screening and panel discussion explores two independent but interconnected feminist solidarity networks for film and video production and distribution, and foregrounds the historical tensions between representation and moving image, while looking towards new approaches and collaborations in contemporary moving image practices.

Join us for a screening of Callisto Mc Nulty’s film, Delphine et Carole, insoumuses (2019), which looks at feminist video activists in France from the 1970s, including actress Delphine Seyrig and Carole Roussopoulos, founders of the Centre Audiovisuel Simone de Beauvoir – the first French organisation to distribute film and video by women artists. As well as being some of the first to document protests by the French women’s movement, they also used the new medium to counter the dominant representation of women on TV and elsewhere with their own images and commentaries. This film both writes a chapter in the history of feminism and traces the beginnings of a creative political practice that used boldness, humour, and subversion to unite collective action, media intervention, and archival documentation.

The screening is followed by a talk by Lucy Reynolds, whose research focuses on questions of the moving image, feminism, political space and collective practice, and a moderated discussion by Daniella Shreir, co-founder and editor of the feminist film publication, Another Gaze.



Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
