Join us for a dynamic and timely re-staging of Circles’ inaugural film programme ‘Her Image Fades as her Voice Rises’ (1982), with films selected by Lis Rhodes and Felicity Sparrow. A selection of four films by four filmmakers made across time and different generations of women filmmakers placed in dialogue with each other.
Circles, founded in 1979, was the first feminist film and video distribution organisation in the UK that emerged out of a heightened moment in the 1970s narrative of London’s feminist film history, politics and collective activism in which the Women’s Liberation Movement played an influential part. Cirlces provided an essential role in the promotion and distribution of exclusively women filmmakers, supporting filmmaking that varied from political and social documentary to more experimental practice.
As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the London Film-makers’ Co-operative (LFMC), this film programme, which opens Tate Modern’s Counter-Histories series, explores the unique contribution of the women filmmakers associated with the LFMC to both experimental and feminist film.
