Schnitzer Cinema: "Acts and Intermissions" and a Skype Q&A with director Abigail Child

Wed, 03/14/2018 - 7:00pm

Abigail Child’s documentary explores the resurgence of protest in the 21st century through a refracted observation of the life and works of anarchist revolutionary Emma Goldman. “As the Most Dangerous Woman Alive, Goldman’s life is seen as an ongoing negotiation of revolutionary purity and personal freedom, a complexity that Child mirrors in her own formal strategies. She layers multiple fragments of Emma’s liberatory legacy—from archive, from reenactment and from observational cinema—her speculative play with the revolutionary ideas extending to the present moment of feminist revolt!” (Craig Baldwin).

Programmed by Richard Herskowitz, curator of media arts, Schnitzer Cinema brings the best of experimental, documentary, and arts-focused films and videos to the JSMA each year. Schnitzer Cinema is made possible in part with a grant from the UO Office of Academic Affairs.

Programs are free, with popcorn and refreshments provided!
