Abstracting the Everyday highlights the vibrant personal visions of eight female members of the New York Film-Makers’ Cooperative (est. 1961). Departing from a realist, objective conception of the world, these artists implemented radical new techniques on 16mm to plumb the depths of human consciousness. Sometimes ecstatic, sometimes haunting, the end result is a fascinating glimpse of the interior worlds of some of the most innovative experimental filmmakers of the 20th century.
