  • Xcèntric Cinema: Steven Woloshen. The Mechanical Trance!

    By on

    The best known camera-less productions of Steven Woloshen share the verve and pace of the freer works of Norman McLaren and the joie de vivre of Robert Breer’s films. Colour, graphics and music take the lead in films that regale the eyes and the ears. But there is another interesting facet to the Canadian filmmaker, less known and more mature and, if possible, even more original, using found footage and formalistic mechanisms reminiscent of structural and materialist cinema, such as his latest film, The Dead Sea Scrolls.

    Freedom Over Fear: Susan Stein’s Feminist Avant-Garde Cinema
    Curated by Mónica Savirón
    Presented by the UC Center for Film and Media Studies

    At age 17, artist Susan Stein was the workshop coordinator at the London Filmmakers’ Co-operative. In 1979, with Lis Rhodes, Felicity Sparrow, Annabel Nicolson, Tina Keane, Mary-Pat Leece, and Joana Davis, she cofounded Circles, the first feminist distribution network for film, video, and performance. Her 16mm films are driven by a female voice, her own, that speaks up against forced, abusive, fear-based structures. In her work, she examines language in the context of the femme-led writings and political movements of the time, and in contrast with the grainy imagery of her sensitive cinematography.
