Join us at e-flux Screening Room on Tuesday, June 28, 7pm for a screening of recent films by Masha Godovannaya, introduced in person by Godovannaya and followed by a conversation between her and film scholar Maria Vinogradova (NYU Jordan Center). 

As a curator and film scholar Katerina Belaglozova writes, “in Masha Godovannaya’s experimental films, intimacy is associated with an activist fervor, while a well-targeted irony at the level of editing and gesture nevertheless affords space to an uncompromising empathy with the small and vulnerable. Masha’s overwhelmingly personal view highlights the structural and political place of sensuous imagery and reveals the absurdity and machismo in the self-representation of political ideologies. Her feminist, queer and decolonial methodology is not just an idea that permeates the filmmaker’s work, but a method that forms the basis for editing heterogeneous materials, from film fragments and found video footage to her own material and the films of other filmmakers that have been reinterpreted through editing. Defragmentation, layering, interspersing and analytically separating images as well as collective collaborative laboring with other artists and queer kin-folks comprises a queer strategy where “decolonizing vision means changing the entire order of things.” This approach to cinema is intertwined with the practice of living and being with others, human and other-than-human, and is open to collectivity and transformation.”
