Thursday 17th May, 7-9:30pm


Film screening including film and video works by Betsy Bromberg, Holly Pester & Jenny Moore, Carolee Schneemann and Sheffield Film Co-op

Programmed by Beth Bramich & Kathryn Siegel


A screening programme of feminist film and video on the theme of affective and reproductive labour. The programme Bramich and Siegel have put together results from discussions at the Bad Vibes Club reading group over the last six months. In particular, two sessions focussing on Julia Kristeva's 'Women’s Time' and the writing of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick have influenced this selection. The works programmed explore different forms of labour through poetry, song and experimental and documentary film and will be presented in 16mm film and digital video.

Places are free but very limited.
