This programme offers a series of structural films made by women, working with the 16 mm film support, interspersing optical resources with material solutions.

An analysis of structural cinema generally debates the films made by US men. Yet the wealth and volume of structural films created by women show how inappropriate this approach is. One of the aims of this session is to uncover preconceived ideas, formal systems and materialist resources of filmmakers involved in the anti-illusionist discoveries of the film medium. Pieces by Canadian Joyce Wieland and Catalan Eugènia Balcells share the bill with a series of works by English women artists associated with the London Film-Makers’ Co-op.
