My First Film w/ filmmaker Zia Anger in person!

Willard Straight Theatre
Thursday, Oct 10, 2019 at 7:15 PM (ET)

A multimedia performance in which filmmaker Zia Anger interacts with
media on screen and the audience using real-time text, spontaneous
Google searches, audience directives and AirDrops. Through the
performance, Anger probes and dissects her “abandoned” works to
re-imagine the relationship between the audience, the filmmaker, the
movie theater and cinema, and erases the line between a filmmaker’s
corporeal body and their body of work. A vital, singular, innovative
work that explores what it means to be a woman and an artist, the
project showcases Anger’s sensibilities and pushes the boundaries of
cinematic experience. “A cathartic collective experiment in what it
might mean to challenge failure, recalibrate it, and reclaim it anew.” (Sight and Sound)

“I have attended dozens, maybe hundreds, of talks about the lack of
women feature film directors—an issue I care deeply about. But after a
while, they all sound the same. Zia Anger has figured out a new way to
discuss these issues, in an incredibly moving, personal, and creative
way.” (Miriam Bale, Artistic Director at Indie Memphis)

Cosponsored with the Cornell Council for the Arts, the Media Studies Program and School of Communications at Ithaca College.
