Maya Deren’s Sink: A tribute to the mother of avant garde American film, as recounted by those who knew her, Teiji Ito’s family, Carolee Schneemann and Judith Malvina. Clips from Deren’s films are projected back into the spaces where they were originally filmed, appearing on the floorboards, furniture and in the bowl of her former sink. As “the walls speak” Deren lives again in this evocative documentary film.
Diving Women of Jeju-do: In Korean with English Subtitles
For hundreds of years the women of the Korean island of Jeju-du have been diving without breathing apparatus to the ocean floor and collecting shellfish, octopus, and urchins that they sell. This ancient tradition is about to die. Filmmaker Barbara Hammer dives with the women and records the reasons behind their disappearing work and lifestyles.
A not to be missed performance!
