Film About a Woman Who...

Events • Art history • Film screening

This event is part of the British Academy's Behind The Camera series.

Choreographer and performer Yvonne Rainer uses traditional images of women to portray the inner life of a dissatisfied and angry woman.

Emerging from the New York avant-garde scene, and questioning the relationship between audience and performer, as she had done in her dance works, Rainer's second feature offers a provocative insight into early 1970s feminism.

1974, 90 minutes, Cert. TBC

Curated and introduced by:
Professor Ian Christie FBA, Birkbeck College, University of London.

Presented in collaboration with the British Museum

Ticket price: £3, £2 (Concessions)
