Wom@rts screening sessions in the Hay Festival

May ’68 marked a watershed in cinematographic practice, with artists aiming to film the real and to join in the social and political movements of the time. In this context of militant effervescence, filmmakers in the late 1960s made use of the new resources of video and, armed with the first Portapak cameras, continued the struggle of their feminist predecessors, creating their own representations. All over France, non-institutionalized video collectives, fluctuating and fertile, sprang up. Among them were Insoumuses, Le Lézard du péril mauve, Video Out, les Muses s’amusent and Videa. The first feminist videos broke with traditional methods in regard to the handling of image and sound. Delphine Seyrig, Carole Roussopoulos, Ioana Wieder and the women of Videa made their unique contributions, full of caustic humour, political probing and feminist commitment. Today, other filmmakers continue the struggle, by creating. With Nicole Fernández (France) in conversation with Patricia del Río.

Her work involves searching for and disseminating archives and research, and she organizes a programme of monthly feminism-related screenings at the Forum des Images and at the Luminor Hôtel de Ville cinema.
