UNVICTIMING: Women Filmmakers Reframe Sexual Violence

This event has ended.

17:00 Sat 12 Jan 2019


Recently, our cultural consciousness has become suffused with stories of sexual violence - women’s stories that span decades. Finally, we are listening and believing. Yet, largely careless and titillating depictions of rape and sexual violence continue to dominate — ELLE, Nocturnal Animals, Gone Girl… Unvictiming interrogates how we should (re)present sexual violence.

Bringing together largely overlooked short films on the subject, Another Gaze: A Feminist Film Journal has selected a five decades-spanning series of short films on this subject as seen by women filmmakers. From Mendieta to Campion, this selection of work will be presented in context with a post-screening discussion with Tanya Horeck, author of Public Rape: Representing Violation. 86’
