Unseen Avant-Gardes: Women Experimental Filmmakers in Yugoslavia, 1960-90 (18*) + ScreenTalk

Emerging Film Curators Film Series

A woman looks through a window with light hitting off it.

A selection of rebellious and poetic experimental short films made by women filmmakers during a culturally significant period in Yugoslavia.

An evening of rarely screened shorts from various archives and collections from the former-Yugoslav region, featuring films that frame politics and nationhood as inextricably linked to gender, intimacy, and the urban spaces around us.

Ranging from snapshots of everyday life in Vukica Djilas’ Home Movies and obsessions with 1960s pop music in Tatijana Ivanišević’s Zemsko, to the seminal portrait of Socialist Yugoslavia in Sanja Iveković’s Personal Cuts - these films take audiences on a journey through a cultural, political and personal history via the lens of trailblazing women artists.

Curator Teodora Kosanović will be joined by writer Owen Hatherley for a discussion following the screening.

Full programme line-up to be announced.

Please note this screening contains instances of nudity, unsimulated sex, dead animals, and references to war and violence.

Curated by Teodora Kosanovic.
