  • Walden presents: Joyce Wieland & Amy Taubin

    This film program brings together two very prominent people within the American and Canadian alternative art and film communities. Eminent film critic, underground actress and performance artist Amy Taubin made a few forays into the world of filmmaking, and her most well known work is In the Bag, from 1981. In the words of film scholar and theorist Noël Carroll: «Roughly twenty minutes long, the film records a search through a tattered, patchwork-quilt shoulder bag for something – we know not what.
