Privilege

Loading...
Middle-age documentary filmmaker Yvonne Washington is becoming a "woman of a certain age", so she invites long-time friend Jenny to assist in filming a candid and open dialogue on menopause. This becomes a commentary on the implicit interrelation between vanity and subjugation, as women already relegated to secondary status in society face further trivialization and exclusion, reduced to a caricatured, iconic pop culture image: the crone. The film is also a scathing exposition of ageism, sexism, economic elitism, and racism--the isms that artificially define and characterize empowerment in contemporary society--and the marginalization, disenfranchisement, and social segregation that pervade everyday existence, informing the myth of privilege.

Loading...

Film About a Woman Who

Loading...
In this film narrative is re-invented with a feminist point-of-view. The storyline concerns a woman whose sexual dissatisfaction masks an enormous anger, while the film combines words and images with postmodern lightness, economy, and visual panache. Both Minimalist and Conceptualist, the emotional temperature approximates that of performance art, containing a running commentary on and interrogation of sex, sexuality, sexism, objectification, and the male gaze. The narration--non-diegetic sentence fragments dispassionately, deliberately articulated by a female speaker--represents the cultural suppression of the female voice.

Du Levande

Loading...
"You the living: Hypnotic and darkly humorous, Roy Andersson's You, the living is a uniquely Scandinavian take on the absurdities of life. Expertly shot and whimsically written, You, the living traces a series of bizarre, deadpan and comic vignettes which wryly address the meaning (or lack thereof) of life. Visually striking, strangely hilarious, utterly surreal and fantastical in its execution, You, the living is sure to be an instant cult classic.
