The Slow Escape, my first film, will be playing in NYC tonight, Saturday Nov. 5th, at Interference Archive in Brooklyn. Bonus: also lots of other great films made in the 90s/00s.
Joanie4Jackie is a VHS distribution project of short work by women, conceived by filmmaker Miranda July in 1995. Born out of the cultural movement of Riot Grrrl conventions and cheap fanzine production, Joanie4Jackie was developed before the internet and its characteristic peer-to-peer file exchange. The project supported communication and connections between female media makers across the United States. Every participant received a compilation Chainletter in which their video was contextualized with ten other filmmakers’ work. No submission was rejected. Effectively, each Chainletter became a mix-tape of films produced by women mostly unknown to each other.
November 5th, 7 pm, free, at Interference Archive, 131 8th St. #4, Brooklyn, NY 11215
