A Feminist Film Series

Every Monday evening throughout the month of August, Craftswoman House partners with Women's Center for Creative Work to present A Feminist Film Screening Series at the Echo Chamber in Echo Park. On August 4th we'll be screening a selection of short films by Nancy Holt, an artist known for her installation art, public works, film and photo work, and as "a pioneer in the land-art movement of the 1960s and ’70s and the creator of one of the era’s most poetic works — “Sun Tunnels,” four huge concrete culverts set in the Utah desert to align with the sun on summer and winter solstices." (NY Times, 2014). 

The films will be accompanied by a brief introduction to Holt's filmic work by Aurora Tang. Tang is a researcher, curator, and program manager at the Center for Land Use Interpretation and the managing director of High Desert Test Sites.

A suggested donation of $5-$20 goes to provide snacks and drinks, a stipend to those presenting the film, and to support the ongoing activities of the WCCW. Space is limited to 40 people, and priority will be given to those who RSVP ahead of time. Snacks, sodas and water will be provided. Please RSVP on the google doc on the Facebook invite here.

Films begin at 8:30
